Well, my problem with rinfo is: I'm no C programmer. I'd have to learn C 
first before being able to add things properly. Although I'd really love to 
learn C, I don't have the time for that right now.

I already wrote a RCS file parser in Perl (which is badly coded because I'm 
no Perl programmer, too, but at least I know how it works and how I can 
modify it). There already was such a thing for perl, but for some reason I 
felt not comfortable with it. 

All my parser does so far, is, well, parse the file and throw an error if 
there's a syntax error in it. I don't even have an internal represation of 
the file's data right now. I kind of paused development because Mike Castle 
told me twice not to modify old revisions and I wonder if I should proceed in 
this direction, or do the new branch solution or just leave everything as is.

So, comments on the branch idea described in my prior mail is welcome!
