CvsChangeLog should accept a branch as an optional parameter

I attempted to implement this RFE a few weeks ago (it should be simple), but 
couldn't make the underlying CVS client actually give me the logs I wanted.  If 
I do a "cvs log -rSOME_BRANCH" it mostly works, except that it provides logs 
for files that are not *on* that branch.   I suspect I've got a conceptual 
mismatch, but maybe my flounderings will be useful to someone else :)

Example:
In a directory, there is a file A in HEAD with revision 1.5.  A branch 
TEST_BRANCH is made at this point, and further changes are made to A on that 
branch (revision 1.5.2.1).  Meanwhile, on HEAD other changes are made to A 
(revision 1.6) and a new file B is added (revision 1.1). 

If I do a "cvs log -rTEST_BRANCH" in that directory, I see change A:1.5.2.1 
(correct!) and change B:1.1 (not wanted!).

*shrug*
