I'd recommend using a dedicated "emacs23" branch instead of a tag.  Sync
just that branch with Emacs CVS.  After syncing from Emacs, cherry-pick
the changes you want for master (I use git add -p to group the changes
into semi-atomic commits first before committing them).

In order to sync to Emacs, sync emacs23 first, merge master to emacs23,
*then* overwrite files in Emacs CVS using what's in the emacs23 branch
(or commit first to a git repo of Emacs, then use git-cvsexportcommit to
apply the patch to CVS).
