I don't have an answer to your question, but just wanted to
point out that any file added on the branch only never shows
up in the CVS changelog for the branch!

This is a nasty gotcha caused by CVS, not Ant, but that has
bitten us, and people should be aware of it. CruiseControl
monitoring a CVS branch is affected the same way, since it
also relies on CVS to get the change set, and that never
includes these files added on the branch. Of no other files
are modified, a build won't even kick of!

For some reason, CVS makes a log entry on the HEAD, adding the
file to the Attic on the HEAD, with a message along the line of
File was added on branch so and so.
