Not currently, no. There has, I think, been some discussion of importing
some or all of CVSNT's trigger mechanisms, but AFAIK nothing's been done
on it yet.

I don't understand: if you allow Anna the rights to list the files, why
not let her check them out?

Currently, the access control is quite weak. For the most part, CVS
relies on operating system permissions. cvs_acls helps, but there are
still a lot of holes. CVS was designed in the days where there was a lot
more trust in computing.
