Thanks James.  That might work in my case, but overall it doesn't seem
to cover each of the 6 cases I mentioned.  For instance, if I only want
one user to be able to commit, but want only a particular group of
people to be able to do checkouts, how can one tell arch about the
permissions scheme?

POSIX ACL's may be nice, but requiring Linux to use arch would be
locking out a lot of *BSD users who would never let us hear the end of
