1. Smart thing, to tag before doing the import. :)

2. I know this is one way to revert to a tagged point, I'm sure there
are others. This is taken from info:cvs#Merging_two_revisions

cvs update -j (current revision) -j (old revision) filename

(yes, this is icky for bulk reversions. You could tag the 'now' point,
then do cvs update -j nowtag -j thentag over the whole sandbox.)
