No, it won't work.  Multiple vendor branch support was nice in theory,
but it is simply not possible to implement them properly with the trick
CVS uses to manage "cvs import" and conflict detection with local

If you have third party code that is independently modified by two or
more separate parties and you wish to record it all in a CVS repository
and perhaps use CVS to help move changes from one branch to another then
you'll have to manually create "real" CVS branches for each "third
party" and and manually check in the their changes yourself.
