I suggest that YOU get your facts straight.

1) Only the head changes are written at the top of the file. For other 
branches, cvs has to track down to the branch point and then back out the 
branch. At each step, it must apply the "patch" that represents the 
difference in the two versions.
2) I have seen routines that append to the end of a file. However, if I 
insert at the front, I must copy the entire file.
