Ber, this was always the same at drupal.org, I don't know what you mean by 
doing it the 'new' way causes difficulties. This is how CVS is intended 
to work. It was always that if you branched for Drupal 4.6 or 4.7, you 
needed to apply patches both to DRUPAL-4-6, DRUPAL-4-7 and HEAD 
respectively, if you wanted these branches to have your changes. Since 
these are three distinct branches, they have three distinct development 
paths. You can follow DRUPAL core HEAD in your contrib HEAD for eample 
(ie. apply the new menu system changes to your module now, if you have 
that much time), so these branches might need different patches for a 
change to be made to menu items for example.
