CVSNT still uses CVS' user management with enhanced functions (e.g. no 
more separately encrypting passwords).  CVSNT also obeys NTFS file 
permissions when impersonation is enabled.  See 
http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/SetAcl for one possibly way of setting up 
CVSNT in your environment.

It's reliable.  Linux works great too.  Personally, I use NT 
authentication with SSPI at work and pserver (internally only) or ssh 
against my Linux server at home.

You can use the POSTCOMMIT script on the server to do most anything you 
can script.  The only catch is that it runs on the server--as long as 
that sandbox is on the server you're fine.
