That or a better version control system. :-)
The problem with using unionfs for this (besides all the problems with
unionfs itself) is that once you modify a file locally, any changes
from HEAD will be ignored rather than merged.
I have been using Mercurial to clone CVS working trees; it works
reasonably well, particularly for carrying local changes, but it's
pretty extravagant with disk space.
