yes.

yes.

(SCNR). But in case you also want to know how it is done:
1. Have a look at the cvs admin command (especially with
   -o for "outdate"). Make absolutely sure that
   a) the revision is not a branching point
   b) no one has checked out that revision.
   You may also want to delete any tags refering to that
   revision first.
2. There's a perl script named cvs_acls (don't know if
   this is in the CVS distribution). Ask Google. It can
   be used via CVSROOT/commitinfo.
   However, it only checks *commits*. Import is not
   restricted.

Kind regards
    Ingolf
