The way you can work could be (it's the same if you are using

* Have a copy (clone) of the main repo, which is a pristine copy of
  CVS. call it 'master'.
* Clone or create a branch from the 'master'.  This is the working

Master can be updated regularly.  And also, you can merge the changes
in your branch or even, only look the changes without touching 

What can be merge automatically, it will.  Otherwise, a external
tool is called (such as meld or whatever you use).

Evenmore, you can try merging with previous cvs' commits to avoid
the pain.
