Thanks Gerhard and Khalid for your perfectly reasonable suggestions.
It turns out cvs does have just the option I was looking for. This command
(with -f option):
$ cvs update -dPf -r DRUPAL-4-7
Will use the DRUPAL-4-7 branch where available, and HEAD otherwise. This
appeals to me because I don't have to spend time figuring out which modules
have branched and which haven't.
