for repository

This becomes a problem when one wants to use "-kk" on 
"cvs update|checkout] -j ..." to get rid of stupid merge conflicts in
keyword values. When such a command covers a binary file, the file can get 

The attached patch prevents that a keyword substitution command option
can override a "-kb" in the repository file. 
It is still possible to change the keyword substitution mode for the repository
