We do normally want the the log message for rel-tag-n+1 if, but only if,
it's on a different revision from rel-tag-n; and that's not how the
current development version works, yet.  (This is not the same as also
adding '-rrel-tag-n+1' to the command!)

The 'rev::' variant is close to this, but of course only until any new
revision is committed after a release is made....

It would also be very nice if there were an option flag to cause nothing
at all to be printed about a file when no revisions are selected.

It would also be very nice if there were an option flag to ommit all of
the header except the working directory file name, relative to the
directory from where cvs is invoked (or in the case of 'rlog' relative
to the base of the module directory in the repository, but without the ,v).
