What is the point? Commits to CVS don't affect your checked out copy.
There is locking in place when you are checking out.

The idea of freezing code is foreign to CVS; if you have to freeze code
periodically, something is amiss in your process.

To protect a known stable release candidate codebase from unwanted
changes, you make a branch.
