There's a better way in general.  Each time you import, you supply a
release tag; you should use those release tags instead of the vendor tag
with the :yesterday modifier.  So instead of the above, you'd do
something like:

        cvs co -jRel2 -jRel3 module

where "Rel3" is the release tag for the version you just imported and
"Rel2" is the release tag for the previous version.
