Well, you do know that CVS client/server can be used simultaneously at
manual locations.

That's fine too.  Branches should be avoided when necessary.  As you 
probably know, CVS is just software; release management and code management
stuff is all over and beyond the scope of CVS itself.

So, yeah, whatever system makes it easier for you.  I've used cases where
we start a new module for a major rewrite, and cases where we branch
the source.
