Unfortunately, although I administer this box(holding the site/CVS/etc),
it's not one that I can let anyone have shell access to.  I've got no
problem allowing trusted developers to have full CVS access, but I don't
know how to do that yet :)

Absolutely!  Let's take this offline then, and see if we can't get a solid
safe CVS archive up and running, thanks!

Good, after we get the CVS archive up and running, anyone knowing how to
do this can take over this part and add in support for it, I'll try to
pick it up as we go...

I don't know what style I'm using, the only part I really care about is
putting the {}s on their own lines:
	if(x > 1)
	{
		code;
	}

I'm sure we can find some nicely written style guide out there to agree
on???  Apache's is here: http://dev.apache.org/styleguide.html and we
could use that as a base to go from?
