alternative to CVS magic branches

in CVSNT there's a feature called magic branches. Basically it means that
if you branch from head (or any other branch) the all the files in the
magic branch will continue to have all changes made in the future until
the point where you change them. So if you have 20 files and you change
only a small number of them you only have to merge changes to the files
you modified, the others always have changes in the trunk.
Is the only option in Subversion to merge the trunk to the branch regulary
or is there another option I missed while reading the manual?

Kind Regards,
