Unfortunately you can not combine a Date and a tag, but if you know the
dates of both tags I think you can combine them to get what you want like:  -l "-d \"2005-05-05T11:20<2005-05-17T16:51\""
or call the log command directly
cvs log -d 2005-05-05T11:20<2005-05-17T16:51

Note that the date format above does not fully comply with ISO 8601 [2],
because the time zone is not included, so you will have to convert to UTC if
you are getting the date from some tool not using UTC.
