You are jumping to conclusions; read the documentation and work with
CVS merges for a while. There is some manual work in merging, but it's
not in the area where you think it is; namely, it is in the logistics
of tracking what has been merged where. The actual merge algorithm does
a good amount of work for you; you will find that most changes merge
without conflicts, and that conflicts are usually easy to resolve.
