I removed csh from almost all of my systems long ago.

I still have no interest in re-writing sccs2rcs into perl though....  :-)

(I don't think I would ever use sccs2rcs.csh either -- I'd write my own
conversion tool in POSIX shell if I had to, even though it would be
trivial for me to either install csh again or find a machine where it is
still present and working....)

I wouldn't have any objection to that!  ;-)
