This sort of works for cvsadmins using the commandline client but
doesn't work for endusers using the webUI.

Where it breaks down even for the cvsadmins is what to do when there are
different owners on different package-branches.  For instance, Foo is
the owner in RHL8-FC2.  Bar is the FC3-devel owner, and Baz is the EL5
owner.  I don't think that admins will often want to change all of those.

- --global could error out when it encounters such a situation.... But
this is going to become more common because we probably don't want or
need to change ownership on EOL releases.
