That particular command could not have caused any permanent damage, so
I'm not really sure what you're so worried about.

Far worse are operations which add, delete, or move, tags; but as I've

additional access control for those kinds of things, at least on a
per-repository basis, in much the same way the existing cvsadmin feature
