The problem with doing that, which in fact also applies to my (bad)
suggestion, is that this will 'schedule for removal' all files in HEAD not
in tag1.

That makes it even simpler. You don't need all those extra branches and
merges. Just:

cvs update -A
(make sure you have no un-committed changes)
cvs update -jHEAD -jtag1
cvs update -jHEAD -jtag2
cvs update -jHEAD -jtag3
cvs update -jHEAD -jtagN
(sanity check)
cvs commit

(by the way, do a trial run on a test portion of your repository to make
sure the -j options are in the right order).

Now, I'm starting to get a little suspicious that your process is not the
most effective. Why are you constantly overwriting the head? Can you
describe your work flow a little?
