It depends, but you could have in the boost regression tests:

using cvs ;

update : <toolset>cvs ;

I do a cvs to perforce update:

checkout : <toolset>perforce ;
update : <toolset>cvs ;
revert : <what>unchanged : <toolset>perforce ;
add : <toolset>perforce ;
delete : <toolset>perforce ;
checkin : <description>"Boost CVS update" : <toolset>perforce ;

This *will* change, just concepts for now.
