Theoretically cvsupping a tag should work, but the question is
whether cvsup will 'do the right thing' with the file deletions.
Either it does or it doesn't.
cvsup should handle that without any trouble. I used to always
cvsup directly into /usr/src, and in fact I still do that on my
freebsd/sparc64 machine (because it is too low on disk space to
keep a copy of the cvs repository).
I prefer to use cvsup to download the entire repository, so I have
all of it locally if I want to pull out specific revisions of a
file. I think it is well worth the disk space (and it certainly
does require more disk space to do it that way).
