I'd like to add my own keyword for CVS which contains text specific to
my projects.  I've done this for a few revisions by modifying rcs.c to
hard-code in what I need.  However, this gets tiresome over time, so I'd
like to add a generalized mechanism to handle customized keywords and
get it into the builds.  But I don't want to waste anyone's time with
something that won't be added to the product.  So my questions:  Is
whether this is worth doing for others, or is it just a complexity that
no one wants?  If the former, is anyone else is pursuing this route?
And finally, what is the preferred extension mechanism for CvsNT (still
calling scripts?), and can you point me to an example in the source of
where it's called?
