If you are not happy using CVS, then you probably do not want the
bleeding edge emacs that you are going to get from it. 

The website tells you an easy way to use CVS

cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs login

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs co <modulename>



like so. 

You will not get one file, but rather all the source for emacs.
