Well, I am reading my mail with Gnus and I configured it in a way that it
highlights all commits to modules that I maintain or that I'm interested in.

Of course, I don't read any single mail on cvs-commits-list.

So maybe what we can do instead of adding ACLs is to provide a way to let
maintainers get all commits to their modules - this isn't hard to set up.
