Assuming "[d:A]" means symbolic tag "d" was added, "[b:M]" means tag "b" was 
and "[b:D]" means tag "b" was deleted:

1)  Will sdir/foo.c look the same as othersdir/foo.c?  I ask only because all 
of the
other history commands seem to keep <file> and <repodir> as separate fields.

2)  Will a symbolic tag be included in the history if it was specified in the 
command?  e.g. 'cvs tag -roldtag -b newtag" would list "oldtag" somewhere as 
well as
"newtag".  I know this seems somewhat redundant, but it gives the user the 
to make quick analyses such as, "Oh, Betty created a maintenance branch from 
the 4.0
release"...  Perhaps a "from rev" (see below) format similar to, "symtag:numrev"
when necessary?

3)  I'd like to see a "from rev" and a "to rev" for a move ("M") command.  I 
the information is available form playing with taginfo.

4)  Ditto for a "from rev" for delete ("D") ops.
