Yes, that was the idea.

Hmm.  This does avoid having to accumulate the tags post-TAGNAME to pass
to "cvs tag -d".  "cvs admin -oTAGNAME::" dies on discovering any tags
for later revisions.  It probably makes sense to make sure the dangling
tags are deleted (or redirected to head, or something else safe).

I've passed along an inquiry about whether the cvs tree contains any
branches post-TAGNAME to the other company.  If they do, it seems I will
probably have to script something slightly more sophisticated, along the
lines of what Mark D. Baushke suggested.

Thanks again to everyone who has provided feedback.  I'm going to go
dive into "man 1 rcs" a bit more.
