If it's read-only, there wouldn't be much harm...

If your modules file is well-maintained, There's "cvs checkout -c | more",
or "cvs checkout CVSROOT".  Recent versions of cvs have "cvs rlog",
which will tell you basically everything about a module, short of the
actual sources --you might want to pipe it into a script or two.
