git rebase

is my favorite and is very handy to maintain changes w.r.t official
repository to be then contributed back. BTW, rebasing is what CVS
actually does with your local changes when you do 'cvs update'. Except
git rebase is much more safe and convenient. I can't tell if hg or bzr
already have something similar though as they seem to borrow features
from each other rather quickly.

My personal order of preference is: git, hg, bzr. But once again, the
differences between those 3 are minor compared to advantages any of them
has compared to CVS ;-)
