True. The cvs logs are globally polluted by the log messages of all 
branches. Glad to hear this is fixed in SVN.

I have to admit I don't know SVN much, I had just assumed from what I 
read that the default behavior was to pull all branches unless you 
specify a single branch or the trunk at checkout time. If the default is 
to only pull the trunk (like CVS does) then you're right that solves 
this issue.

Thanks for the clarifications
