Hmm, sounds a bit like you need bzr instead. Bzr is designed for
disconnected development.

It has fixed a couple of the annoyances that CVS suffer from but of
course also has a few drawbacks.

The cmd line interface is pretty much like CVS so the transition is
easy - I use both CVS and BZR.

- works well without central repository
- works fine in "disconnected" state on your local box
- meta data is also revision controlled
- that includes permissions and file names
- revision numbers are for the whole module, not the individual files

- requires python
- centralized respository is not so well supported yet
- does not have the amount of 3rd party tools that CVS has (GUIs and
WEB intrgration etc)
- it's quite new (though I find it also quite stable)
