woo, I just tried it and find the rcs file was result in an inconsistant 
condition.  This command is really unsafe to use. scared...., how could some 
command appear in the help manual unsafe to use. I recommend to remove the 
command which is unsafe or show user a warning message both in help docs and 
before execute the command the potential risk of using it.
