There is no branch yet for the code "after 23.1".
I suggest you create a branch on the allout.el file.  Most CVS primers
should be able to tell you how to do that.
E.g. something like:

  cvs tag ALLOUT_WORK_BASE allout.el
  cvs tag -b ALLOUT_WORK allout.el

will create the branch (together with a tag that keeps track of the base
of the branch, which you can move if/when you sync your code with the
trunk code) and then

  cvs update -r ALLOUT_WORK allout.el

will get you the ALLOUT_WORK version of allout.el and commits on it will
go to that branch.

Sounds like mistakes.  Feel free to change the code to be more
compatible with XEmacs.

Neither do I.
