Hmm we deliberately don't honour permission bits in CVSROOT (partly
because of the problems it caused on some NT machines and partly because
it adds an extra layer of security - if you can't checkin an executable
script it's harder to do nasty things with the server).
Perhaps we need a flag in config to enable this where required.
