Right; we both agree that this is unsatisfactory.

``Working revision'' and ``sticky tag'' are different.

There can be a sticky tag ``release_branch'', the working revision can
be, and there can be a new revision in the repository.

I'd want cvs annotate to consider only and its ancestors, but
if it were to use the sticky branch tag ``release_branch'' it would
include the new revision

So in other words, I'd want it to ignore the sticky tag, and just use
the revision number found in CVS/Entries.

In fact, is there a a reason why any operations other than
update, commit, add and remove should care about sticky tags?
Which ones?
