  | which means the branch field is optional and can hold at most a single
  | revision number. But if a the file has multiple branches, which branch
  | number should be inserted there? What does it mean if one branch number is
  | there as opposed to another one? Why is the field even neccessary at all?

       admin     ::=  head       {num};
                      { branch   {num}; }
                      access     {id}*;
                      symbols    {sym : num}*;
                      locks      {id : num}*;  {strict  ;}
                      { comment  {string}; }
                      { expand   {string}; }
                      { newphrase }*


branches are recorded on "symbols" field.
"branch" field specifies which branch is used when "-r" option is omitted.
