rlog is part of RCS and thus uses the cannonical RCS file parser.  If it
doesn't work, chances are it isn't broken, it's just not being used
correctly.  I think your time would be better spent investigating why it
fails rather than reinventing the wheel.  Especially since, if the
problem *is* misuse, it will probably affect your code exactly the same
