Not easily.  Post-processing the output of "cvs stat -v" is about
the size of it.

N.B.: There's a file $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/val-tags that is supposed
to list all the tags (branch and revision tags both) in the repo,
but it's not always accurate, so it's best not to depend on it.

When I came back around from the dark side, there in front of me would
be the landing area where the crew was, and the Earth, all in the view
of my window. I couldn't help but think that there in front of me was
all of humanity, except me.
