You could define the subset as a module, then simply:
        cvs checkout CmdFiles

Doing it as a module still has this problem -- you have to keep
CVSROOT/modules up to date.  But then, your proposed solution of
using a sort-of-branch tag also has to be maintained manually --
you have to remember to tag each new file.

If you were able to isolate included files from excluded ones by
putting them in separate directories, you could make the
"CmdFiles" module just refer to the appropriate directories, and
it'd pick up file adds/deletes automatically.  But that might
distort the source tree too much to be practical.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.
