Please read the TSVN manual. We don't target CVS users specifically, but
there is a reasonable tutorial on daily use.

Correct, in 1.3.1 it shows only the branch creation points. However the
revision graph is being worked on at this very moment :-) In 1.4.0 it
will show the start and the tip of every branch, and there is an option
to show *every* revision as well. This should give you the functionality
you are looking for. Try a nightly build if you are feeling adventurous.

Works for me. If you right click on a single file you can branch/tag
just the same as you can with a folder. You can branch any versioned
file or folder, not just trunk.
