Hmmm... Okay, I guess we need to wait until one of
the folks who builds CVS on Windows tells us what
they used.

Ahh.. Okay.

It will be reading the existing files and copying
them in to temporary ,filename, files and adding
the new tag along the way. I would have thought
that operation would be more IO bound than CPU
bound, but I have not looked at it closely in a
long time.
