Subject CVS how to swap HEAD and a Branch? (was RE: CURRENT direction for James :-))

A quick survey of google reveals that HEAD is quite possibly just a "magic"

So ... we merge those parts of 3 we want with whichever 2 branch which we
want to become the HEAD and check them into the 2 branch.

It *ought* to be possible then to checkout and  tag the HEAD as BRANCH_3

and remove the HEAD tag from this branch

then checkout our 2 branch

and tag it with HEAD.

Thats just a guess though, it still might pay to post this question to
infrastructure@ in case I'm wrong or there are any nasty gotchas, so I'm
cc'ing them in on this.
 TIA infrastructure guys :-)

Then MAIN will be pushed off as a branch (or we can just tag it as
