In CVS directories exist on all branches so you can't restrict them to a
single branch. You can restrict creation of files within that directory
(so a co -dP or update -d will not create the unwanted directory).

Avoid using -R if you can - permissions are inherited anyway and putting
them on all subdirectories just duplicates them.
