The way branching works in CVS, it's actually easier to maintain a 
directory full of patch files than to maintain a branch, because you can 
keep each patch separate and easily remove a specific thing if you 
decide you no longer need that feature.  That way also keeps them 
separate so you can pass it around to other folks if you decide that 
feature does belong upstream without fear of accidently including other 
stuff in it.
