Follow-up Comment #14, patch #4573 (project cvs):

Which 100s of companies would those be?  Perhaps some of their
representatives would care to pipe up and provide example use cases as well
as explaining why they can't ask their developers to stop changing keyword

Anyhow, I am still against this for the reasons I stated before - I believe
this patch implements behavior totally contrary to at least a decade of CVS
development philosophy as I understand it.  Data should never be thrown away
if we can help it (exempting legacy support for rcs commands like `cvs admin
-o', though I really don't even like those).
