[development] How to update DRUPAL-4-7 from CVS?

I have a drupal install that I checked out of CVS some time ago, in the 4.7.3
timeframe, I believe. I'd like to update it to get something post 4.7.4.
This is how I thought it should be done:
cvs update -r DRUPAL-4-7
Or some variant close to that. But this causes a problem. The problem is
that leaves me with duplicates of drupal core modules. For example in my
modules directory, I get aggregator.module and aggregator/aggregator.module,
block.module and block/block.module, and so on for all drupal modules which
were once files but are now in their own directory.
I was under the impression these modules which sit in their own directory are
DRUPAL-5 modules. But if I understand CVS correctly (which is hard to do),
those modules are also tagged DRUPAL-4-7. Is this an accident or am I doing
something wrong on my end? Is there any way to update a DRUPAL-4-7 checkout
without getting modules written for DRUPAL-5?
Note that I am not using this command:
cvs update -dPf -r DRUPAL-4-7
which I know would check out files added to DRUPAL-HEAD after DRUPAL-4-7. I
thought the earlier command would be a safe way to upgrade a DRUPAL-4-7, but
I think some files have been accidentally tagged as DRUPAL-4-7 when they
should not be.
