CVS: How can I export the latest revisions of files that were modified after a specified date?

I am trying to find a way to export the latest revisions of all files from a branch (e.g., the trunk) that were modified AFTER a specified date. As far as I know, the standard export function spits out all the files that were present on the specified date. I'd like the filter the files that were modified after that date so I can easily extract the files needed for a patch.

Does anybody know any tricks how to do this? We are running CVS on Windows and I am using both WinCVS and TurtoiseCVS, so I can easily enter commands via the command line.

Thanks in advance for any insight you can give me.

Thank you very much. This allows me to do what I need with a couple of extra steps, even if CVS itself doesn't provide such an export filter. Greatly appreciate your help!
