Ah - I would bump the major revision of all files in the repository  
and also ensure that any new files added picked up that new revesion.
ie using the major number as a revision of the repository rather
that that of a single file.
OTOH most of my experience is with scripts front-ending SCCS for
a small number of users.
 next time they had a delta generated.
 maybe only a large subtree
