Should I not be able to update my working copy of a file by doing something as follows?

cvs update -j HEAD:"2002-07-17 12:00" -j HEAD:"2002-07-19 12:00"

to get changes between July 17 and July 19 placed into my local working copy?

I tried it, and nothing was patched.

In other words, it's a static tag, the most recent version on the trunk, not the trunk itself as a branch. There isn't a trunk tag, but if you use dates to tag the trunk at the two times you mentioned, you should be able to get what you were trying to.
