You're right, not for the faint of heart. I can see how it might be useful in testing situations, but I don't think I'd use it for a production repository, especially if both of the source repositories were being used. You'd very quickly get into a situation where rev x.y in one repos was different than rev x.y in the other. I'm not sure how CVS would resolve/report that.
