Tags apply to revisions, not to branches. So what happens is that the
tag will be applied, in the repository, to the version of each file
that is closest to the working copy. If your working copy most closely
corresponds to version 1.4 as of the last cvs update you performed,
then the tag will apply to version 1.4 (any local changes
notwithstanding). So effectively, the tag creates an association
between a symbolic name, and an entire revision baseline across the set
of files being tagged, which is typically an entire module.

Meta-CVS: version control with directory structure versioning over top of CVS.
