I agree with your arguments.  The cvs init thing is a nasty chicken-
and-egg problem.  A command line option is necessary for cvs init to 
specify the CommitID value to create the CVSROOT with and to write 
into CVSROOT/config.  I'd imagine something like 

        cvs -d ... init -o CommitID=yes

You are also right in that if some revision has a commit ID, it 
should be displayed regardless of the CommitID option.
