It occurred to me that a "Commit ID" implemented as a tag might make a
useful addition to the CVS feature-set.

If a unique commit id tag were applied to each revision as it is
committed (unique across the repository and the same for each file in
a commit), this might be a useful step towards the merge/change set
tracking some people have proposed.

Such a special tag could be accessed to back out a single commit,
implying something like `up -j <cid> -j <<cid> -1>' when used alone to
back out a single, complete, "change".

I would think that either a new namespace and new options // to or
syntax involving -r & -j would be in order or a namespace outside the
current tag namespace, perhaps using names that start with a character
currently prohibited in tags.  I definately prefer the latter but I
have not examined all the implications of that change.

Just an idea in case anybody has any spare time on their hands.

Cheers,

Derek
