Opposite question: Given a file on the trunk, how do I determine which
branches branch off of its history, or which tags it has? I guess I
would need to find out all places that this file has been copied to.

With CVS, I would simply do "cvs log -h file" to get this information.

I know I could simply look in my repository's "branches" and "tags"
directories, but this doesn't tell me which of the branches and tags
differ from each other.

Ideally, I would like to be able to view the entire branch/tag history
of a file as a tree, like the one generated by CvsGraph (see
<http://www.akhphd.au.dk/~bertho/cvsgraph/example.png> for an example),
or by WinCVS's Graph command. Some of my co-workers use these features
often enough that it's going to be difficult to persuade them to switch
to subversion if it has no way to do this.
