Sure: back out the change, create the branch, then redo the change on
the branch.  For example, assuming the revision in question in 1.27:

        cvs up -j1.27 -j1.26 file   # back out unwanted change
        cvs ci                      # commit it
        cvs tag -b newbranch        # create new branch
        cvs up -r newbranch         # move to it
        cvs up -j1.26 -j1.27 file   # redo change on branch
        cvs ci                      # commit it

I just can't identify with that kind of work ethic. -- Calvin
