That's the way I find it!

For a few files (<10), I would just update each of them.

For more files (~100), I did the following:
        1o      Tag my working sandbox with tag FUTURE_GOOD_BUILD (cvs tag FUTURE_GOOD_BUILD ...)

        2o      Check out using tag BEST_TODAY in another sandbox, and tag it FUTURE_GOOD_BUILD too (cvs tag -F FUTURE_GOOD_BUILD ...) ~ notice the "-F" option this time

        3o      Go back to the first sandbox, and do an update using the tag FUTURE_GOOD_BUILD to fetch the files "BEST_TODAY"

This seems to work; still, it would have been less painful with one single command.

Thanks for the response.
