I'm not sure i understand the problem, but the stickiness of branch tags
may help you. If you set up your sandbox with all your files checked out
from the appropriate branches, commits will all go to the right places.

cvs up -rbranch1 file1
cvs up -rbranch2 file2
cvs up -A file_from_trunk

When you commit, file1's change will be committed to branch1, file2's to
branch2 and file_from_trunks to the trunk. Is this what you're looking

If you need to reproduce it, you could write a script to do the initial

Note that this approach is awfully fragile, perhaps even dangerously so,
especially if you expect a whole room full of developers to do it
without errant commits.
