which behavior are you suggesting should be implemented?
A) when checkout/export is called with a tag, if a File does not have that
tag just get the latest version.
B) when checkout/export is called with a tag, if no File in the directory
has that tag, do not create the directory in the sandbox/export.

Here is what I envision (from the description above) jacinleyoung did :
cvs checkout modA 
cd modA
cvs tag tag123
cd ..
cvs export -r tag123 modB
#results in empty directories created in modB, which is the current EXPECTED

In which case I could support (someone else's patch) to do (B), however (A)
is a non starter.
