I also think it's reasonable, provided we document it somewhere... CVS
is an Unixish tool that few (if any) Windows users will have in their
environment unless they've installed it. But it'd be good to document it,
or at least talk with Steve Kemp and get it added to the Emacs Windows

I don't entirely like, though, the requeriment that the unix-compatible
sort be found on the PATH before any system one... I like to put
c:\bin\cygwin\bin, c:\bin\mingw\bin and the like *after*
c:\winnt\system32, c:\winnt, etc. and wouldn't like to be forced to
change that just to use rcs2log...
