It's not a shell script, but is the -kk option to checkout or export 
good enough for you? It doesn't remove the whole line (a bad idea 
anyway, since sometimes other information may be on the line :-)) but 
removes any potentially sensitive information.

For example, if you issue the command

cvs export -Dnow -kk module

all keywords in module will be changed to just the keyword value:

$Revision: 1.1$ becomes $Revision$ and so on.
