Yes, you are.  The magic incantation is

    from refs/heads/<branch>^0

I've just pushed a cvsps-3.9 with an -i option that generates these at
each branch root.  Combine it with -d and you get incremental

You get to integrate this.  I think the transition strategy Junio
has chosen is seriously mistaken, leading to unnecessary grief for users
who will be fooled into thinking it's OK to still use cvsps-2.x. Because
I do not wish to encourage or endorse this mistake and am tired of arguing
against stubborn determination to do the wrong thing, I am not going to 
sink more effort into the git project's end of the CVS-lifting problem.
There are too many better uses for my time.
