For TortoiseCVS (an Explorer extension interface to CVS), I felt
forced to implement exactly this feature via a kludge using "cvs

(It makes an empty directory in a temporary place, and does cvs import
on that, then checks it out again, and copies the CVS bit to the
working directory).

New users expect to just be able to go:
        cvs add --newmodule mynewmodule
and make that as a new module, already checked out in place.

Most everything else in cvs is easy to explain to people.

I'm not being critical that this isn't there, just giving my support
to folk who would like this feature!
