Diffing by date on a CVS branch

I wanted to compare my current working copy of a CVS branch to a previous version by date. I had to discover that Eclipse does not provide this possibility: you can specify CVS revisions by date, but only on CVS HEAD. So I had no other choice but do this from the command line:
cvs co -r BRANCH_abc -D '2006-09-25 12:25' mymodule
cvs diff -r BRANCH_abc

Thanks, I found this out the hard way too.
