A slick way of doing this is to create a ~/.cvsrc file, which allows you to
add default arguments.  Here is mine:

cvs -q
update -d -P
diff -u

The first line adds '-q' to all cvs commands by default.  I work with large
projects with many directories and a global '-q' really cleans up the
output.  The second two lines automatically add -d -P and -u to cvs update
and cvs diff respectively.
