In my case, at least the most recent of those cvs tag operations
was just a 'cvs tag x86info-1_14'. Nothing fancy.  I'm fairly sure
there was nothing fancy about the earlier instance either.
So sure in fact, I had to look up that -F flag in the man page to find
out what it did.

x86info cvs shouldn't even have any branches, so theres no strange
head merging going on.

If you're curious, its a sourceforge project at 
module is 'x86info'.  Both x86info-1_14 and x86info-1_6 are marked as funky
for reasons I'm unaware.
