Define 'always gets expanded'
$log is special - it (like all other keywords) is written into the RCS
file *but* it makes modifications to multiple lines - you can't remove
them once the file is committed as they are part of the file, not part
of the $Log keyword any more. You can stop any more comments appearing,
but you can't do anything about the ones that are already there.
You get the same effect with -ko.
