Let me get this straight -- you committed changes to the trunk, now you
wish you had made them on a branch instead?  If so, the simplest way to
proceed is to create your branch at the current head of the trunk:

        cvs tag -b my_branch

Then you can back out your changes.  You'll need to tag the version you
want since you can't merge by date.  Once that's done, you can do a
merge to back out the changes and then commit the reverted files:

        cvs tag -D2003-03-01 temp_tag
        cvs up -jHEAD -jtemp_tag
        cvs ci -m'revert to 2003-03-01 version'
        cvs tag -d temp_tag
