You have not understood the way CVS works...
The numbers you see ( after an import) are not version numbers,
they are *file revision* numbers.
These are managed by the CVS system and you should not try to modify
them manually.
Versions are something that is handled through 'tags' in CVS. You
assign a certain version on a module containing many souce files at
varying revision states by setting a tag at a certain time. The name
of the tag can be for example 'ReleaseVersion_1-1-0' (unfortunately
you cannot use periods in a tag).
After this has been done all files in the module have recorded which
revision is connected to the tag and you can later check out *exactly*
this set of files using the tag.
