That looks complicated.  I'd prefer what

$ info '(cvs)Tracking sources'

says.  This requires  only one workspace.  (You could  keep the source
file of  the last imported,  external version for  convenience.)  When
you want  to commit  your changes, use  'cvs diff  -r$LAST_RELEASE' to
find out  the changes.  You can  'patch' the imported  source with the
diff output.
