This is of course pure nitpicking but you said that CVS doesn't even
normally _read_ the state. I think if it knows to take action in case of a
"dead" revision, i.e. to not check it out, it must definitely have read the
state first...

Then again, I might just be as ignorant about the separating line between
CVS and RCS as many people appear to be about that one between WinCvs and
CVS (not on this list of course)... ;)
