I think this is only partially true.  Since CVS doesn't currently absolutely
know whether there are any remaining conflicts, why would it be a requirement
when doing manual merges?  For example AFAIK, if I get a conflict upon update,
then touch the file, CVS will gladly check it in for me.  Is this correct?
