I have yet to find documentation of such a feature.  The only thing
I've found was a usenet post warning not to branch selected files
only, because CVS gets confused when updating or commiting in a
directory containing branched and non-branched files.  Such a mix
might not happen with the setup proposed by Stefan, however.

And what about standalone releases?  Would those be shipped with
ChangeLog files for each directory?  We'd probably have to clean those
files in the branch of any entries not related to RefTeX.

Okay, that would be another approach.

I still cannot say that I am too enthusiastic about maintaining a
package when its files are scattered throughout a larger repository.
