Simply don't check anything in to any other branch if you want that. 
Remember in cvs directories exist on *all* branches simultaneously.

evs could theoretically change that (since there's nothing stopping it 
creating branch specific directories, or even directories with different 
names in each branch) but probably won't for a while due to the amount 
of potential confusion.
