no.  i'm just being a bonehead, that's all.  i was stuck on simply
using ci (which doesn't have -ko) and needed to be a bit more
flexible.  if, instead of doing

	ci -q -l -f -mtest -t-test testfile

for the initial check-in and then

	ci -q -l -f -mtest testfile

for each revision i check in, i change the first command to

	ci -q -f -mtest -t-test testfile
	rcs -ko testfile
	co -l testfile

then i can accomplish what i want.  of course, the second command
works just find as it is.

thank you for your patience.  :)
