Yes, if there's a good reason for it, such as if you have a library that has
been accepted into Boost, or is helping maintaining one of them.

You first need to get permission. :) That typically also means that at least
someone among admin, or other boosters, knows you well enough to think
you're not a "hooligan". Also, I think anyone starting to screw up the CVS
will see their write permission revoked faster than you can say "commit". :)
Any files "deleted" may always be brought back, for example. I think you'll
find that the Boost library is in good hands.
