That's a very bad idea -- HEAD is a magic word to CVS, it means the most
recent revision on the default branch (normally the trunk).

The two tags in an import command are the vendor tag and the release
tag, respectively.  The vendor tag should identify the source of the
code: an actual vendor or a project, perhaps something like "FreeBSD",
"GNU", or just "NET".  The release tag should identify the release of
the software you're importing: CVS1-11-2, EMACS20-7, etc.
