That's the reason I asked the question.

Fortunately for me if I do it in this manner the user has only created
this one branch after a import into the repository.  So everthing
looks identical..

I just tried using the admin -n command in a test repository.  I'm getting:

donsharp-u5:27> cvs admin -nFOOZLE: bar
RCS file: /nfs/swtrf/repository/test/c/bar,v
cvs [admin aborted]: revision `' does not exist

I know doesn't exist, but that's the branch revision number...
