    It's because CVS cannot handle what BK does. So when you do a BK merge,
    there's no way in hell that will be a CVS merge, and instead it ends up
    being one big commit of the branch.

    Merges happen pretty often, so these "big commits" aren't _that_ big
    (certainly nowhere near as big as a CVS banch merge tends to be - if only
    simply because nobody uses CVS for "small branches", the pain isn't worth
    it).

    Face it. BK is just better than CVS. It's not a 1:1 mapping.
