I've had a potential brainwave.  If an import, which is a actually
just another branch except you don't need to add things one at a
time, creates an active head, why shouldn't adding on a branch
create an active head too?

Both places I have worked where we developed on branches,
both had scripts that would rename the "Tag" in order to get
files added to the head, then put on the branch.

Should CVS simply be changed so that adding on branches is
treated the same way as imports, ie it creates BOTH the head
and the branch, both active?  This would have the effect of
fixing that inconsistency and moving it out of the Attic at the
same time.

BFN.  Paul.
