One thing that I often do is keep a local copy of a working area checked
out somewhere, and when I want to start a new sandbox, instead of do a
checkout, I copy the working copy over to the new area, then do a cvs up.
Occasionally I will update the initial working area.

I believe that a few CVS hosted projects use that method for initial
distribution (I want to say Mozilla, and possibly wine).  You download
a tar file and unpack it, and then you can do cvs commands directly
from there.
