Sure -- let a thousand flowers bloom. Besides, there are some client
applications that expect to use RCS as the backend, not CVS.
I'm more worried about the text/binary issues -- especially mixtures.
E.g. if the revision files are stored on a binary mount, but the working
files are stored on text mounts -- or vice versa. Do things still work?
(AFAIRC, even CVS still has difficulty with this)
