How is this different to what CVSNT already does?

As for "branch and commit" a GUI wrapper like TCVS could easily do that 
already with CVSNT:
cvs tag -b funny-branch-auto-name current-module-name
cvs up -r funny-branch-auto-name
cvs ci -m "message"

TCVS already has some functions that combines several CVSNT commands to 
produce one result, so it would seem to me that TCVS (or another GUI) would 
be the better target for such a feature...

How would making this "one command" be significantly better?  What business 
problem does this solve?
