Maybe give a bit more guidance here - RCS IDs can usually be pushed out of 
patches by narrowing down the number of content lines to 2, 1 or even 0.
To do so, pkgdiff can be done (which checks if there's a RCS ID and 
reduces context automatically), or find the right switch to diff(!).

Maybe something like:

          $line->log_warning("Possible RCS tag \"\$$1\$\". Please remove it by reducing the number of context lines with pkgdiff or \"diff -uU[210]\".");
