there are probably lots of things that meet this description. all the
games, for example.
fwiw, i use rcs all the time, and cvs almost never, hence, i am
opposed to the idea of removing rcs from basesrc. when working in a
small group, rcs is fine. removing both source code revision control
systems from basesrc would be bad.
i guess i wouldn't mind so much if someone wrote wrapper scripts for
cvs that emulated the rcs commands. :)
