Well those who want to work on the 1.2 branch can just "cvs checkout -r
APACHE_1_2 -d apache-1.2 apache" and as long as they don't "cvs update -A" 
(which they won't unless they understand what they're doing ;) then cvs
handles it behind your back.  Or am I forgetting something? 

As long as someone who understands branches does the -j merging we should
be fine.  Oh yeah and the same group of someones has to create the branch
in the first place.

I'd kinda like it to stay in the same repository... but I can deal if it

Unless there's a concern that we'll be doing a lot of development on both
branches?  Is that it?  If so then for performance reasons two
repositories are necessary.
