I would like to do some experimentation in a branch of a module, while 
at the same time staying in sync with the main branch.

If I:
 1. tag all the files in the module with a branch tag 
 2. check out a copy of the module with the branch tag, and another
    copy of the module on the main branch
 3. every time someone else does changes to the module, update my main 
    branch copy and do a "cvs tag -F whatever_branch_tag" (is this
    enough?  Or do I need a "-r" as well?)

Is this right or wrong?  Will it work the way I think it will work?
Am I cluttering the repository files with branch versions that never
will be used?
