Right after sending the email I realised that what I was describing is
already invented and is called 'branches' :-)

We don't really need a separate repository for each of these projects,
but the ability to create branches. Maybe if it's not practical to have
too many branches in the main repository -I don't know too much about
cvs administration and permissions-, we could have a new repository
-better svn-, in which we mirror the main one, and have a more relaxed
commit policy, and the ability to create branches.

Actually I could keep a branch -kind of- in a folder in my sandbox. Only
I don't know whether it will be too much for the current cvs repository
if we all start to create our own branches like that.
