That's bogus.  CVS has always had an "ALL" keyword.  RTFM:

           All occurrences of the name `ALL' appearing as a regular expression
        are used in addition to the first matching regular expression or the
        name `DEFAULT'.

That's also more or less bogus.  There's been comit_prep and
log_accum in the contrib directory for nearly forever and they do
exactly the same thing.

Now that's sort of interesting.  (Scheme would have been better :-)
