If you don't know what's in the repository, how do you know what you're
going to want to check out?

You seem to be thinking backwards of the way CVS works:  In CVS, tags
identify branches and revisions within a file.  That is, files contain
tags, tags don't contain files.  It isn't meaningful to as what tags
exist in the repository since there isn't any central directory and it's
entirely possible for the same tag to exist in two separate files with
completely independent meanings.  V1_0 in the foo source code doesn't
have anything whatsoever to do with V1_0 in the bar source code.
