Easy way to flush history/versions of repository?

Please excuse me if this is a simple question. I am a relative CVS newbie,
and I read the CVS manual and FAQ, but could not find an obvious answer.

We have been using CVS for a year now, and have accumulated quite a large
repository.  We have a major release coming up, and I would like to archive
the current repository and start a new one, without the history/version
baggage of the old repository.

As far as I can tell, the only way of doing this is to initialize a brand
new repository, and then perform a CVS import.  I think this may be a bit
time consuming (please correct me if I'm wrong) because we have a mixture of
binary and text files, and the last time I did a CVS import, I found I had
to explicitly tell CVS which ones were binary.

I don't think I can just delete the history file, and manually editing the
,v files looks dangerous.

Any ideas or insights would be appreciated.
