to branch or not to branch

Hi all,

I've just begun version control for one of my clients. We make releases
every couple of weeks to customers, and sometimes, restructuring of objects
etc. means that bug fixes are better off being made to the version a client
was given rather than giving them the more unstable current dev version. I
don't get the feeling this is particularly unusual.

I'm tagging all the modules just before we release with:
cvs rtag -b ROT_major_minor_build mod1 mod2 ...

The question is, should I use the -b option even if I don't need to branch
yet? I know there a size+speed+complexity overhead associated. Most of the
time it doesn't happen, but I want to have the option open if it's needed.
Can I just tag it and then later turn it into a branch?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
