That answer surprises me.  Over the last ten years I've used CVS at many jobs, 
and I've used it to branch and merge lots of times.  I found it roughly 
equivalent to, say, subversion in utility for that purpose.  In fact, for home 
development to this day I use CVS and put IDE-specific files (e.g., NetBeans 
"nbproject" directory tree) in a branch away from the trunk.

Well, as they say, YMMV.
