=====
and you're using CVS, you can't check in each of the steps or check in each day's work without breaking the tree for everyone else
=====

The way we handle this situation in CVS (committing changes that span days to complete) is to create a private branch for the intermediate work. When you're done you just merge that branch or, if it doesn't work out, you can simply abandon the branch. Either way you can source control your work along the way.
