Right, that is how branching in CVS works. It's possible that they have 
their tree broken up into individual modules, though, in which case they 
could branch only parts of the tree.

However, it is possible to apply CVS branch tags to only specifically 
listed files, instead of the entire tree. I have no idea if this would 
actually be practical, because I assume (haven't tested) that a checkout 
of the branch would get only those files and that would not be very useful.
