Unless they've changed it since I last looked at it (which is possible.. 
I haven't run an old cvs since early 1.12) it doesn't - the -k- and -k+ 
options were added precisely because of this problem in the original CVS 
code - a checkout using -ko would wipe all the -kb settings off the 
files, for example, making certain kinds of diff operations rather hard 
to execute.
