Have you not looked at the content of an RCS file lately Paul?

RCS compatability is far more than just the adherence to the syntax
defined in rcsfile(5).  If the generic "co" program from the RCS package
cannot extract any and every revision of a file from a file claiming to
be an RCS file then that file is clearly not RCS compatible.

Maybe hypocrisy would be a better description of your approach to CVS.
