No: I've used a setup with combined CVS+RCS setup for quite a while
(hence `vc-switch-backend`), and tried the "prompt" route but even by
making the prompt lazy (i.e. only prompt when you want to actually run
a command) I found it too annoying (and making the prompt lazy is
actually hard to do with the current system, I only experimented with
it via big ugly hack).

It predates vc-dir, but it shouldn't be difficult to make it work in
