A branch can't have a new starting point. You have to merge down all
your latest changes from the existing production branch to the trunk,
and then start a new production branch.

You might not want to do that right away either; the typical process
involves some integration, testing and other development work before
identifying a baseline that will be the new production release.

Meta-CVS: the working replacement for CVS that has been stable for two
years.  It versions the directory structure, symbolic links and execute
permissions. It figures out renaming on import. Plus it babysits the kids
and does light housekeeping!
