True, but that assumes that every file in that directory uses the same
ACL. This is not always the case.

I don't think they have ever 'dropped CVS'. Indeed, they support the
CVSNT RCS wrappers directly.

Assuming that the CVSNT RCS wrappers respect the ACL's, it is simply a
matter of making ViewVC run as the authenticated user. You can create a
small setuid program for this.
