I have often wished for an automatic way to check out all existing
branches of a given module with one command.  Example:  If I have
module mymod with HEAD and branches named rel1 and rel2:

mkdir cvs_co
cd cvs_co
cvs co -b mymod
cd mymod
ls  # would list HEAD (or head), rel1, and rel2, and probably CVS)

The -b option is of course ficticious.

ability to seek it.  To be free defines what we can do, not what we can get.
