The -r option for cvs commit has been removed from CVSNT a while back
(I think about a year or so) because it was misused.
Revisions should be treated as internal implementation details for CVS
and not messed with. If you want to signal that a number of files
belong together then you should use tags instead. They are designed
exactly for that purpose.
