When PreservePermission is set, the information is actually written to the
RCS files.  Is this a gross hack?  Does it break up RCS somehow?

Is RCS still beeing developed at all?

I see no reason why the frame of the RCS file format should be a definite
blocker for what features there can be in CVS.  After all, if RCS was
perfect, there would be no need for CVS?

Information that won't fit into the ,v-files can be stored elsewere.  It
adds complexity, and that's undesireable - but it's certainly possible.
