Tony, thanks for your answer. I don't intend to change the data in 
CVS repo or change any CVS operation, since the source files after 
keyword expansion are only for programmer's viewing. Basically, my 
question was about controlling the keyword expansion during check-out. 
Now I know it seems impossible. 

Another idea is to create a user-defined keyword like $Localtime$, 
and it always records the check-in time in certain timezone. Is it 
possible in cvsnt? I noticed there's a keyword file under CVSROOT.
Any suggestion would be very appreciated.
