I've already thought about this solution. It works, but IMHO isn't a
good way of organizing things. The main problem with "import" stuff is
that it solves only "one" (but important) revision management problem,
ie, when we want to hack other's code, and whenever a new vendor version
comes, we don't have our changes lost. That's all. Every other problem
involves some odd way to adapt it to the way import works. People keep
asking for importing into the main branch, etc. I see that one day, if
CVS want to remain a import concurrent versioning system, those issues
will have to be addressed

No, only numbers like 1.1.1, 1.1.3, 1.1.5 are allowed. CVS prints "Only 
branches with 2 dots are supported", or something like that. Very
