cvs -n update -r TAG <- Can I get the version?

hi there

Often I use "cvs -n update -r TAG" to see which files will be updated
when I update from the current version of my files to the release tag "TAG".
What I do need also are the version numbers of the files.

So instead of just seeing

U calc/multiply.cpp
U misc/printout.cpp

I would like to see 

U (1.2->1.7) calc/multiply.cpp
U (1.4->1.19) misc/printout.cpp

so I get to see that calc/multiply.cpp will be updated from version 1.2 
to 1.7 if I update, and similarly that misc/printout.cpp will be updated 
from 1.4 to 1.19 if I update.
... And note that "-n" flag - I do not like to update the files before I
check the changes.

Any clues on how to get near my wish?
