If you are using a UNIX or Linux client, you
should be able to use:

   umask 077
   cvs checkout module

and have all of the files and directories checked
out by cvs be of the mode you seem to want.

If for some reason umask 077 is not possible, the
addition of a command like:

  cvs update module
  chmod -R go= .

would change the files and directories to have
permissions you want.
