Will there be a way to generate RCS files so tools which depend upon the RCS

Very probably... its amazing that some of the older versions are still in
use (despite their warts).

(Then again, I've come across systems running COBOL code written 30 years

Is there a roadmap for how you see cvsnt progressing? It would be nice to
get an idea of the direction in which its heading (obviously 3.0 will be a
big step... but what will come after that... distributed servers?)
