You must use 'edit -c' and 'commit -c' in every single edit/commit
command.  This of course won't really stop you editing the files, but
it should make it harder.

If you really want to stick with reserved edits IMHO PVCS was a better
choice.  cvs is specifically designed for concurrent development.
