I know this isn't exactly what you asked, but among the external  
editors there are BBEdit and Alpha which include CVS support; Alpha,  
in particular, has extended TeX functionalities.

That said, I still belong to the group of people who wonder why they  
would ever want version control. Given I'm writing mostly single- 
author documents, I consider that for the moment it would take more  
time to learn how this works, install it and customize it to suit my  
needs, than to do things manually as I've ever done.

All that to say, I know nothing about any version control system  
(CVS, subversion, etc.) actually.
