Probably the easiest thing to do is to temporarily tag the revisions you
want to revert to then update with two -j options.  Something like:

        $ cvs update -rbranch -D'yesterday'
        $ cvs tag temptag
        $ cvs update -rbranch
        $ cvs update -jbranch -jtemptag
        $ cvs commit -m'revert'
        $ cvs tag -d temptag

If I get a bad grade, it'll be YOUR fault for not doing the work for me!
