        I was under the impression that the revision numbers were used
internally by cvs itself to track the changes on a per-commit basis of
each file? 

        If I go from 1.46 of a file to 1.1 in a new location, and then want to
retrieve version 1.12 of that file, how do I do that, when all of the
revision numbers are now missing from the new file (but of course, still
exist in Attic/oldfile,v) 

        ..and if I must use tags and tags alone, are you suggesting that I
instruct my developers to tag every single file at every single commit?
That could get tedious.
