Tag every file in the release.  Another thing you can do is use RCS
ID information in the files; where I last worked each C++ compilation
unit had something like const char * rcsid = "$Id";.

You don't have to change them, all you have to do is tag them.  There's
no problem whatsoever in having multiple CVS tags on the same revision.
