Version backups are only made and used as long as the backend is CVS.
They are completely irrelevant while you are using RCS -- not made,
not used, not touched.

I'm not sure how that would fail with the current scheme.  You revert
the file -- which causes the backup to be deleted --, then you
re-insert some of the diffs (by whatever means you do that) -- and the
backup is created again.  The invariant is that while the file is in
sync with the repository, there is no backup file.

Or am I not getting your scenario right?
