I've never noticed csup(1) being at all reluctant to update a file based
on the version number going backwards.  Case in point -- recently the server has been frozen and not accepting updates
from upstream.  I've been updating my ports from a different cvsup
server -- if I try again, I get this:

% root csup -h /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile

Connection to localhost closed.

That's reverting most of the changes in the last week or so.
