The symbolic names section of "cvs log" output is a pain to read,
as it's in no useful order.

This trivial patch sorts them alphabetically.  I've tested it
(including the edge case of a file with no tags) and it works just
Personally, I like the status quo - that the tags are in reverse
chronological order of creation.

Me too.  At least put a non-default #ifdef around it, if making
it a configuration option/command-line switch is too much work.

Or you could just create a sortedlog script that does
cvs log -h | sort

although I more commonly need to do a | grep xxxx | head

I agree with Paul and Max. This one is easy enough to script. I'll vote to pass on this one, unless there is a large outcry from users.

OPHELIA  Could beauty, my lord, have better commerce
 than with honesty?
HAMLET  Ay, truly.  For the power of beauty will sooner
 transform honesty from what it is to a bawd than the
 force of honesty can translate beauty into his likeness.
 This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it
 proof.  I did love you once.
OPHELIA  Indeed, my lord, you made me believe so.
