You could ``cvs update'' some sandbox to a specific revision, and then
use rsync to synchronize it to the target location, so that only things
that changed are copied over. There is probably a way to tell rsync not
to copy the CVS/ directories.

Scanning the rsync man page, I see that it not only has an exclude
option similar to that of GNU tar, but also a way to exclude files in a
similar way to what CVS ignore does.
