What do you mean by "cross branching?" I have some guesses, but rather than
guess wrong I'd like you to explain :=)

You probably saw it in the manual for 'cvs update'. If you specify one -j
option, then CVS will treat it as the second -j option, and use the branch
point as the first, i.e.:

cvs update -j tag-you-specify

is treated as:

cvs update -j branch-point -j tag-you-specify
