Ah, I see. I thought you meant you wanted to tag version 1.x.y.1, i.e. the
first version you checked into the branch.

The easiest way to do what you want is to apply the tags _at the same time_.
Or, better still, apply the non-branch tag, then use that tag as a '-r'
option to 'cvs tag', when you're applying the branch tag. For example:

cvs tag branch-name
cvs tag -r branch-name -b branch-name-bt

(I've used the naming convention our company uses: branch tag names are
formed by taking the non-branch tag name used to identify the branch point,
and adding a '-bt' suffix.)
