If you use a recent version of PCL-CVS (i.e. from the CVS repository of
Emacs), you can hit `l' to get the cvs log, then go to the message you want
to change and hit `e'.

Completion is disappointing for this kind of command:
- it's a fair bit of work.
- it's slow, especially with remote repositories.
- it's pretty useless here because the version-string space is "dense",
  so the completion will complete "1." for you and that's about it.
