The two separate files would also need to be in two different
directories, otherwise the directory locking would force them int
commits on a different second.

Granularity for CVS is one second and it is very easy to have two
commits occur to the repository within one second by different authors.

The RCS timestamp format is a the level of one second, not one
millisecond. However, locks intentionally wait until the next second to
give some delay to the proceedings so that now two versions of the same
file may occur at the same second.
