cvs update -CdP -r "tag" folder will not result in a get of every file in 
folder or it's sub directories unless the CVS folders exist in the folder 

Playing around last night I found that cvs checkout will build the structure 
if it doesn't exist.
The problem using checkout instead of update will be if someone has 
exclusive access to a file(s). Will CVS still give me a copy of the file?
