Drupal Contrib Branches Made Simple:

Maintain a checkout of each branch, separately.
   cvs -d:pserver:your_user_name at cvs.drupal.org:/cvs/drupal-contrib login
   cvs -d:pserver:your_user_name at cvs.drupal.org:/cvs/drupal-contrib 
checkout -r DRUPAL-4-5 contributions

When you need to update the 4.5 version of the module, go to your 4.5 
directory and update it.
   cvs update -dP

Then make your changes and commit them.
   cvs commit

Repeat this for each branch that needs updates.

You only need to branch a module *once*, when it is first available for 
a particular Drupal release.
