This seems like a really simple question, but I haven't found it in
the FAQ or Cederqvist.  And a co-worker has borrowed all my CVS books.

Say you have local changes on a file, and you want to revert to the
current repository version.  I know a one-line way to do that:

      cvs update -p foobar > foobar

But I was wondering if there is a way to do it using the -j argument,
something like

      cvs update -j <current uncommitted state> -j HEAD foobar

(assuming I'm on the trunk).  But I don't know a tag for the current
uncommitted state.

So is that possible, or is my -p method the most concise way possible?
