I'll check out gitolite, thanks.

We use unix users extensively (groups, permissions etc.) with YP, and this 
works well; a separate permissions scheme is not very desireable.

The ssh method works very well right now, and nicely transparent. It's 
only the initial clone/creation that is harder than it was over NFS. And 
it prevents the use of git-shell too.
