That's not a problem.  Branches are created in the repository, not in
your working directory.  So, if you create a branch by using tag -b in
your working directory, the revision that's tagged is the revision that
you checked out -- the fact that you have made local modifications to
the file is irrelevant.  Once you've created the branch, you can switch
your local directory to it using update -r and then when you commit your
changes, you'll be committing them to the branch.
