FWIW, I do many joins, and have never been inspired to
only specify a single "-j".  In my environment, it is not
possible for CVS to know what the unspecified "-j" is.

Maybe the primer should be changed to encourage the
use of two "-j" except for "very simple situations"?

I don't know enough about current cvs behaviour as to what
"very simple situations" are.  I personally always create a
tag (on the branch) before issuing the "-j".  I always do the
"-j" between two non-branch tags, I never use a (dynamic)
branch-tag.  That way there is no doubt about what is actually
done.

BFN.  Paul.
