AFAIK, no, but if you are willing to patch and rebuild your cvs binary, you
can do something like this.

Attached is a tiny patch I use - I create the file CVSROOT/readonly within
read-only replica repositories, (and make sure to prevent the mirroring tool
from deleting it again), and then use an explicit -d option (but I use a
shell alias to minimize typing) when I need to do a tag/commit.
