I think it that would be great!


We're handling (MS and others) documents in CVS and we do the keyword
subst. with a separate program called from a couple of macros.

We do a fixed-length substitution as you describe which doesn't break
the documents.

I do not get why keyword substitution is strictly off for binary files. 
Why cannot we have a fixed length substitution like: 
$Revision:          $ => $Revision: 1.1      $ 

Or is it just me who do not know how to do it? 

Anyway, downloading the source code, having a look on the possibilities.

What about to introduce a new switch which goes along with -kb? 

Please let me know your opinion...
