Hee hee!  Same mistake I made the other day....  :-)

It's the creation of directories ("cvs update -d") that is implicit with
"cvs checkout", not "-P" for pruning.

(of course they both should be....  can't we please make it so before
the next full release?)

The other clue to remind us is of course that "cvs checkout -d dir" has a
different meaning.

Yes, "-P" is implicit, as it must be, with both "checkout" and "update"
when the operation is on a branch.

Note "cvs export" also implies both directory creation and pruning.
