Parsing RCS is relatively easy but to be robust you have to ignore what
you don't understand.. the cvs (and by extension cvsnt) code does that
The problem is cvsnt is changing.. at some point in the future there
won't be any RCS files at all - in the interim I'm loading them up with
all the information I need to make 2.5.02 work.. anything that makes
assumptions about the format is going to break sooner or later.

Probably not a big issue in the short term with a bit of patching of
cvsgraph... OTOH it should be possible to do it using the output from
rlog (as WinCVS does).
