I resorted to trolling the rcs source. I'll go back and look at how it handles
-k switches.

Hmmm. These are new files that I've created with vim and used ci
to archive to the RCS dir. co them and the buggers have got CRs in 'em.
The rcs is vanilla woody so I can't figure out why it would mangle my
unix files with CRs.  

Maybe my brain is encouraging me to do something else during the easter
break :-/  Thanks James, I'll keep tinkering. I can google rcs -k now ..
