Yes, but in that case you have the danger of a hard-to-reproduce
export.  Since an export is only useful to created a frozen
snapshot, presumably for some sort of external use, it usually
corresponds to a release, and releases should have tags.
It wouldn't bother me if export only worked on a tag.  After
all, you can always cvs rtag a tag onto a specified time,
and export from there.
