Do you really need a timestamp per branch, though?  If you have
branches A and B, and B has a commit timestamp 5 minutes after A, you
can infer that nothing happened on A for those five minutes, right?
So maybe a single timestamp is sufficient, it just may not be picking
the right one.  Instead cvsimport-3 should compute the latest
timestamp across all import branches.
