No it won't! I have to know to *which* file to run "cvs status" in
order to get the info I want. And depending on the tag I'm interested
in, it might not be sufficient to do "cvs status" on one file alone!

Take for instance this very real example (my source-tree is a

  cvs status -v Makefile

File: Makefile          Status: Up-to-date
