Backward compatibility is good up until the point it holds things back. If CVS
can be changed/resigned in a way to allow support directory versioning and
merge tracking, I think that those improvements an important enough to make an
exception to the hardline (and very good to have) backward compatibility rule.

Call it CVS ver. 2.0. Why can't CVS have two supported releases in parallel?
