You've got my vote!  :)

I fixed an RCS archive corruption problem back in March that occurred when case insensitve clients attempted to rename a file (rm/add), but I introduced some new spurious error messages & a server abort when it probably shouldn't. At least it's no longer archive corruption, and the trigger cases are rare enough, but GAH! I'll probably have to spend another day or two fixing that. :(

Mark, adding the tests cases for the case insensitivity problem is going to be, at the least, a pain. It requires a case-insensitive client and a case-sensitive server at the same time. It's possible that some forced definitions on a case-sensitive server could produce the case-insensitive client, but that's more overhead than I want to get into yet. Maybe after I finish the autotest update. One of these days I'll get back to that. :(

Maybe the script to pipe to an invocation of `cvs server' would be short enough to make it reasonable to mimic a case-insensitve client in sanity.sh, but I'm not sure I have the time for that.
