I'm writing a script to process a file stored in CVS, and have ran into something awkward. All I want to do is extract a read-only copy of a file stored in cvs. But:

/usr/bin/cvs -lf -Qd /tmp/cvsroot_test co -r1.2 module/
Requires write access to the repository.

/usr/bin/cvs -lf -Qd /tmp/cvsroot_test export -r1.2 module/
Requires a symbolic tag, not a revision number.

/usr/bin/cvs -lf -Qd /tmp/cvsroot_test co -p -r1.2 module/
Is slow because of the pipe.

Is there an easy way to just extract a single file from a cvs repository, without the hassles described above?
