Now that I think of it, you could live with patches.

    cvs checkout -ko -rVENDOR the_project
    cd the_project
    patch -p1 < ../the_latest_patch
    cvs import -m'patch, date' the_project VENDOR new_release_tag

The import command will ignore the CVS/ subdirectories and the net
result will be as if you were importing a tarball.  It's a little
error-prone, on your side and theirs, so be careful.
