What makes you think that it is a very common-place

All the messages I have seen in here appear to be coming from
people who use the head.  I haven't seen any indication that
people are adding files on a branch and then importing over
them either.

Not a great survey, but where did you get your information from?

Source on the "many"?  And even if you have them, it doesn't
mean it is being used in the same situation as me.  Are they
in the Attic AND on a branch?

Apparently all this time I was the only one who ever did a
cvs diff between two tags too, and noticed the corresponding
bug on deleted files.  Presumably the many active repositories
don't use "cvs diff" much?  Or "cvs rdiff -s" either.  Or maybe
there aren't that many truly active repositories like mine?

BFN.  Paul.
