There is a some weirdness with CVSROOT and root doing commits in there.

The default acl on CVSROOT when a repo is created gives root full access...
but because CVS_BADROOT is defined by default in config.h.in the commit
process will refuse to allow root to do any commits because of this.

Does it make sense to simply undefine CVS_BADROOT in config.h.in and let
root's ability to commit be determined by cvsnt's ACLs?
