Yep, I think that's what I'll use.

Was reading over that.  I normally use linux, it looks like FreeBSD
'jail' and linux 'chroot' commands provide roughly the same
functionality, with better networking support with FreeBSD jail.

Is there a separate BSD 'chroot' command that provides different
functionality than the 'jail' command?

generally the cvs binary operates on the local filesystem CVSROOT,
so using cvs remotely via the ssh shell is an easy way to do remote.
but with no login shell I doubt running remote cvs commands will be easy.
pserver is a cleartext server daemon for cvs access, but seems to get
compromised from time to time.
