Ah. That makes sense; CVS currently can't handle trees checked out from
multiple repositories. (Although it would seem obvious to do so, given
that the information is replicated all the way down the tree. They plan
to fix that, I'm told.)
You would have to do the co/up from the original trees, not the merged one.
And then relink to handle dangling links or new files.
I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
