Files in the in repository doesn't have sticky tags.  Files in your
workarea do.  If you do something like:

cvs update -r foo

Then the sticky tag is placed on your harddrive and the repository couldn't
care less.

In your work area.  If you use "tag" is always reference the version number
of the file on your harddrive.  Now, you may have uncommitted changes, and
if you later commit those, the tag does not reflect that.  It tags just the
version of the file you last updated to.
