[OS X TeX] working with version control for TeX projects

At present, I use CVL and TexShop to work with CVS repositories. This  
is OK, but I've had issues with CVL changing files and TeXShop not  
noticing. In addition, the lack of a automatic hard wrap option in  
TeXShop makes coexistence with *nix and Windows collaborators less  
than ideal. Finally, CVL doesn't work with svn. I'd appreciate  
suggestions of alternative setups that others in the list have used  
successfully for collaborative writing projects with cvs or cvl-based  
version control. I have bbedit, which supports cvs and svn. It might  
make sense to set it up as an external editor for TexShop, but I'm  
not sure what configuration/scripting tweaks may be needed to make  
the combo work smoothly.
