It's -kv, not '-ko'.  '-kv' removes the keyword (and the bracketing
$$) and leaves only the value.

Your files will end up looking like this:

    * Since $Revision: $: still working
    * Since 1.24: ladidda badabba
    * Since 1.23: tamtidelam

and you have to be *very* careful with the spelling of '$Revision: $'
when you add a new line in the file you're editing.  I recommend
ending it with a colon and space before the dollar, as above, so
you can verify the presence of the keyword with the RCS command 'ident'
before you commit into cvs.  Maybe even in a commitinfo script !
