branches off of branches

Is there a way to make a branch off another branch, what I'm
envisioning is the following:

              /   dev 
      /      test

where dev can be merged into test (and test only), and 
test can be merged into head (and head only).

The idea is that you don't need to touch the head branch in 
order to do merges. I know you could directly merge head 
with test with something like:

cvs update -j test -j dev

but it then behooves you to remember when you've done 
the damn merge..

Argh! Overall, cvs's branching ability leaves much to be desired. 
I'd use MetaCVS, except I need to have the functionality available 
on solaris....


(ps - also wrt MetaCVS... why isn't there a sourceforge project for it?)
