Mainly those import issues are what bothers me most. I'll try to come up
with a concrete way of dealing with vendor sub-branches. Another way
that would help me with that linux branch example would be cvs commit
with an option similar to "cvs import -d". Instead of a import, a series
of add/commit that preserves the file's original timestamp would do it.

Well, I think cvs does a great (and complicated) job of managing
versions and concurrent committing. Just by saying that one feature is
complicated doesn't mean that it shouldn't be implemented, if enough
people think it's important and useful.
