Currently the internal description of DatumNumber and DatumRevisionNumber, etc.
allows the comparison of branch and revision numbers. However, this is not
entirely appropriate and results in the weirdness that a branch is a
descendant of its base revision, which is really on the branch.

It requires a bit of exploration of LibCVS implementation to determine if this
comparison is actually useful. Especially considering it could be easily
emulated by getting the branch of the revision, and comparing that to the
other branch, or getting the base of the branch and comparing that to the
other revision. Sounds like work.
