Yes from the sounds of it that is exactly what you should be using.  And
yes - if you want to 'rollback' a commit you certainly can using the
commit id.

cvs update -e -j @commitid -j "@<commitid"

When you commit this a mergepoint will also be creating which shows in
the history that the change was rolled back.

Note: there are also 'user defined changesets' which can span multiple
commits, see "cvs commit -B jub-number".

And that's exactly what the 'build' plugin in CVS Suite (the
commercially supported version of CVSNT) is used for.  In the latest
version of this we also pass the 'user defined job number' but I've
never thought of the need to pass the 'commitid' - but it'd be easy
enough to add...
