Torsten, do you mean running the stand-alone viewvc webserver? Because I was thinking about that before, if only that wouldn't open a little security hole. Let's suppose user A starts up an instance of viewvc's standalone server. Let's suppose it uses port 5000. Other ssh users could tunnel to the same port if they liked, or that's what I think at present.
