No, and it would not make any sense either...
The reason is that when a commit is made to files in a directory (or
worse, several directories) there can be as many tags (sticky or
branch) as there are files committed....
Each file can be on a completely separate branch.
Since this is so (and since I often use sandboxes where a few files
are updated to various different branches) I found it to be impossible
to do what you request.
There is also a limit to the length of the subject line in an email
and one has to be careful not to exceed it in order not to crash the
mail sending.

The only time it would make sense to do this is when the mail is sent
as a result of a cvs tag command, which by nature only has a single
tag value associated with it.
But CVSMailer is currently not working that way.
