Ok, well this is moving away from the topic I'd prefer, that being the
sccs2rcs script issue, but...

Well, at this moment, we have 1835 SCCS directories and an absolute ton
of source.  SCCS isn't the fastest thing to use -- I believe RCS blows
it out of the water in the most common case of getting the most recent
version out of the repository -- especially on NFS mounted disk, this
gets to be an issue.

Perhaps more importantly, our development is moving almost entirely to
Linux and the free SCCS support on Linux is lacking (CSSC isn't recommended
by the author).

We'd also like to completely change our development scheme and move to CVS
with maintainers of various subsystems accepting patches from developers
similar to the free software model, but in-house.
