You got it "right enough" about CVS.  CVS does allow you to 
make a branch and then devlope those two branches in parallel
and later merge the two back together.  This works just like
as if you did a "cvs update" on your PC. The diffs from current
CVS get folded into your working directory and if those
diffs clubber anything you did CVS tells you about it.
(see update command in cvs manpage). So, yes you could have
multiple lines of developmentand merge them back into a main line.
