Something I have been thinking about is an 'archive' command that would not
delete revisions the way that admin -o would do, but simply mark them as
archived. Any revisions marked as archived would then be ignored by commands
such as cvs log etc, and the resulting output would be the same as if they
had been deleted. By specifying an extra parameter on the cvs log command
you could then retrieve archived revisions too.

Does anyone think that something like this would be useful?
