[cvsnt] commit -r and admin -o

With the recent discussion on cvs commit -r, I thought I'd ask this:
The command cvs admin -o is used to remove a specific revision of a file. As
far as I know, there is no way to re-create that revision, is that right?
Suppose that for some reason a revision has been removed in this way, but it
needs to go back. Hopefully there should be a backup of the repository, so
the revision can be recreated. But there is no way to put it back into the
repository without manually editing the RCS file. (I'm assuming that by this
point there will be other changes to the file, so simply restoring the
backup would lose the rest of the changes).
Would it be possible to add this functionality to commit -r, ie if you
specify a revision that would be in the past, but doesn't exist, then it
inserts it into the RCS file at the specified point?
