PCL-CVS runs the command asynchronously, so upon completion of the
underlying cvs process, Emacs runs the process's sentinel function (which
in PCL-CVS parses the process's output to update the *cvs* buffer).

I'm not sure what you want to do exactly, but maybe you want to implement
your own cvs-checkout which does something extra after the checkout is
finished, in which case you should probably reimplement the function, using
cvs-mode-run (which takes a :postproc argument where you can specify code to
be executed after the command terminates).
