cvs triggering isn't all that great; a cronjob isn't so bad.
For what it's worth, I've got a few small scripts that let people check
out and update a development copy (or the live copy) of a website, so
that restarting web containers, etc, need only be done after a string of
commits. This means you can commit changes in logcal chunks, rather than
all in one go.
