Unfortunately, this is true.  IMO, it would be great
if diff/merge tools can be plugged into CVS (I think
CVS shouldn't be in a place to dictate, although it
can suggest, how things are diffed/merged, just when
it's supposed to happen).

ClearCase is the only tool on the market I know that
supports this.  I think there was some effort in
creating an open source ClearCase-like tool (katie and
possibly another one?) but I haven't heard anything as
of late.
