You could temporarily tag the revision you are interested in, export that tag, then delete the tag.

is it possible to export a specific file by a revision number? That is,
I want to get that file, but no CVS/ subdirectory and the like.

What I found so far:

1. cvs export -r :TAG: :FILE:
2. cvs co -p -r :REVISION: :FILE: > :WHERE:

Both have disadvantages. "cvs export" does not allow to specify a
revision, this HAS to be a tag. "cvs co" utilizes stdout, which is not
allowed here (due to some bad (?) "policy").

Is there any other option to achieve what I want (other than checking
the file out and deleting the CVS/ directory afterwards)?
