Ok, seems like branching is the way to go. I plan to create a 5.0.x
branch from current cvs head (cvs tag -b branch-5_0_x). Then commit
changes for 5.7 into cvs head. Here is an attempt at some ascii art:

                 .--------- possible branch-5_3_x
branch-5_0_x     |
grass-5_0_3-4        cvs head - 5.7 development happens here

Sound OK?
