You're really asking for trouble by doing that, but anyway...  I
think you can "update special" your entire folder to the branch,
and then update-special each file back to the trunk.  The idea
is to have a sticky branch tag in your sandbox, but no sticky
tag for any file.

It would be easy enough to test in a sandbox without committing
anything to the repository.  Set your Windows Explorer to display
the sticky tags;  make sure all your files have no tag;  create a
new file and cvs-add it, make sure the file is listed with the
sticky tag.
