Basically I need CVS only for versioning capabilities. Before a major
I'd like to do something like this (params are wrong - I have no idea)
   "cvs -tag -recurse -tag_name "Release Number 9" <souce-controlled-dir>

I could then use CVS to restore the directory or even specific file to
release checkpoints.

If that's all you need, is it really worth the trouble of integrating with
CVS? Why not just tar all your files at each release point and keep it
somewhere? Whenever you want you can extract a file, a directory or the
whole tree, diff between releases, etc.

(Personally I would rather use a good source control system and some other
tool for deployment, but I guess that's not an option here).
