(I am not sure how to phrase this without is sounding like a flame, but I 
 will give it a shot)

I am curious as to why CVS is even in the running for you. Do the 
(free|stable|multiplatfom) aspects really make up for the fact the it
does not do what you need from a VC system?

Carrying the argument to the absurd, vi is (free|stable|multiplatfom)
and with just a whole lot of tweaking could support locking. That does
not mean that it should.
