AFAIK the template is *global* for the whole respository. It is
definitely not connected to any tag for any particular file.
How could it be?
When you check out a module from a repository with the templating
enabled you will get a local copy of that file into your CVS
subdirectory. This file covers *all* files in the parent directory and
since each file in a directory can be on a completely different branch
and have different tags as well, it is impossible to have what you are
looking for...
What do you propose would happen if the files to commit are all on
different branches?
