Cool. (Again, I'm embarassed if I should have seen this first.)

Suggested additions:

   Find all the branches of a file...
      (You expected me to say that, didn't you? It was my most
      common CVS operation.)

   Find all the branches and/or tags of a file
     that have ever existed (including ones that
     have been svn rm'ed, and which therefore no longer
     appear in the svn "HEAD directory hierarchy"

     (OK, so I can't do that in CVS)

   Create documentation that is visible to all
   branches and/or versions of a file/module/project
      E.g. "if you need feature FOO, check out branch .../FOO-branch"

      Hint: placing such documentation in a text file loses,
      because the text file is versioned.
      In CVS, I fell into the habit of putting such
      documentation in the log, so that it was visible
      to all versions.
