We've talked about that type of thing.  It's more of a "wouldn't it be
nice".  The problem is we've got thousands of contributors, relatively few
of them actually commit to cvs.  So we could go around to figure out how
to make all of our various auth points report back but that's a lot of
work.  The account system is the only common point of entry for every
contributor.
