well, cvs is pretty much like submitting patches, and if you try to
commit and someone had modified the lines syou're trying to change, it
prompts you to modify or discard the changes.  it's a simple issue to
resolve conflicts.  biggest issue is when lead devs fail to commit or
update often, and it results in massive changes every few days.
