Is that the information that I see when I call cscvs log -PBRANCH ? My
plan was to do some lightweight (and not strictly correct) parsing of
that output. Now I am looking at the DB structure.

It seems that in cscvs's simplified view, a tag maps to a changeset.
That is good enough for me. The question, it turns to be, is whether
Arch gives me a means to give a symbolic name to a revision.

What is the official source for this version? The wiki points me to which was unavailable the last few days
(available now, though).
