Well, what other options do you have?

CVS does not, as far as I know, do an update directly into the filename.
It updates, deletes old, renames new.

But what does scripting it have to do with not being able to delete the
file and then update it?

You are already apparently not concerned with having a transient state
where the file isn't there in a complete form.  So what's the problem?

Just do a cvs -n up, gather up the list of files that need to be updated, 
loop over deleting them and then doing a true update on each file.
