I just realized - I was going the wrong way. You wanted to replace the
branch with the trunk. The commands would then be:

cvs update -rbranch-tag
cvs update -jHEAD -jbranch-tag
cvs commit

On the other hand, it would probably just be easier to abandon 'branch-tag'
and create a new tag:

cvs rtag -b branch2
