Sort of, there are some tricks being played I think, but that is a fine
way to think about it.

Yes, old revisions of binary archives will be available for checkout,
history, branching, etc.

Yes, cvs admin -o, which many including me are using to prune out old
binary revisions that we *know* we will never need.  Once the revision
is removed with the cvs admin command it is gone *forever.*

Someone else will need to help with that question.
