This documentation would be ever so slightly better if it said ``there
can be no separation between the -r option and its argument.'' rather
than ``there can be no space ...''.

Because there *is* no space in -r tag, only in the shell command
notation, which stands for two argument strings, "-r" and "tag". The
issue is that CVS wants these to be catenated.
