I will look into those alternatives. But if patches against
the latest release are too old, then that is a sign of a broken
development process. CVS with branches and release tags
provides explicit, direct support for patching the latest release,
and for merging changes from branch to mainline. And working from
the latest release guarantees that separate threads of development
are identified and contained, and that interactions are restricted
to known merge points.
