Just so I am sure I understand...

If I have a module that checks out only some files for a given directory
and then I use

        cvs tag -rBASE foo

this will cause a different set of files to be tagged than using

        cvs tag foo

Granted that -rBASE may be a bit special... it would just be well to be
able to clearly document why someone is not able to tag just the files
they are looking at in the current tree even if it is based on a
datestamp or older branch or version tag of those files.
