Your inexperience is showing. There are version control tools in *broad*
use that have extremely support for branching and merging.
Exhibit A: Visual SourceSafe. So it's not true that ``almost any
version control tool'' provides the support. Only good ones.

Two or more developers can do development on the same branch, because they
are collaborating on the same feature.  CVS supports such a concurrent
programming use case, and it happens in practice.  People are doing it
around me as I write this.
