Yes, it is.  Perhaps you should be using SCCS or RCS instead of trying
to use the Concurrent Versions System.

There are litterally dozens of front-ends available for RCS (and some
for SCCS) that may provide all or most of the "advanced" features you
claim you need.  Perhaps you should investigate using one of those other
front-ends with RCS (or SCCS).
