Discourage does not mean forbid.

For the record I do all my package changes with cvs-import.sh and I've
never had a tenth of the tagging (or other) cvs problems people
complain on the list every month.

So do not use cvs-import.sh, it's discouraged (official line). That is
unless you have no wish to be exposed to cvs quirks, and find
cvs-import.sh a nice simple interface.
