Same difference. cvs tag will create the tag and place it on the
versions of the files you're tagging. If some of those tags happen to
be branched files, the tag really doesn't care. In other words, if I
check out the RELEASE_1_1_2 tag, I will be checking out in the
RELEASE_1_1_x branch, because all the versions the RELEASE_1_1_2 tag
encompasses are in that branch.

As someone else pointed out, branches and tags don't really
exist. They're just a convenient way of organizing RCS version
