Just grab the Date of the latest change you want and then when you want to go back do a cvs update -D <date> -r <branch>

This will only work correctly if there is guaranteed to be only one checkin per file per day. I believe, and I think this is what Donald meant, that you can record the date and time, as well as branch, and use them to reconstruct a tree. However, this will be the tree that was checked in at that time, which may not be the same tree you were working on. Therefore, the approach you suggested is the most sound.

I know of no existing script that does this; however, I think that you will find it not too difficult to write one.
