I agree with all of Paul's comments about adjusting your process.


CVSNT (yes it runs on linux) already has a switch such as you ask:

Ie:  cvs --nowait checkout mymodule

This option was added 10-Dec-2009 to 'cvs suite 2009', so will be in
that release and any more recent ones:

Or you can make a similar change to your own CVS source - that is, after
all, the primary benefit of GPL software
