    Nope, no separate tree is necessary.

    # commit file in HEAD
    cvs com file.c

    # move to another branch
    cvs upd -r APACHE_2_0_BRANCH file.c

    # merge in latest rev from HEAD
    cvs upd -j HEAD file.c

    # resolve conflicts at this stage!

    # commit
    cvs com -m "MFH: Merge from head" file.c

    # go back to head rev
    cvs upd -A file.c
