We have been discussing that, and that would have to negative sideeffects:
   1) it would be impossible to review/list those files specially 
modified for costumer 'A'
    2) When IFS_712 is released, I'd have some tagging problems, 
detecting where to place the IFS_712_A tag. I cant use IFS_711A, as it's 
  definately wrong on base files (those not modified for that costumer).

But I could update to stickytag IFS_712 and then tag all files as 
IFS_712_A, then stickytag to Costumer_A (removing all other files on the 
sandbox) and  move IFS_712_A on these files. then I should have a 
useable combination of IFS_712 and Costumer_A so we we can start our 
automated build.

This is a bit akward though, as we are talking 10 modules containing 25 
to 890 files each, in all 1825 files on a rough count.
That would indeed massage the CVSNT server on each automated build. :-)
