Tom, yes using CVS in that fashion is probably possible, but it's not how it's typically used, and I don't see any advantage to that scheme either. It doesn't really solve any problems.

People who aren't familiar with CVS, well, generally they don't use it. They download a tarball instead. So I think perhaps what you should really asking for, is more rapid release of point releases, with tarballs, plus also some clear instructions on the website for how to properly yank different releases out of cvs, since some people definitely will want to do that.

(Personally, I never use source tarballs when I can pull a release from CVS instead. CVS is just better.)
