If you encounter a ,DevelopersGuide.doc, file in the repository,
this is the working file that RCS primatives uses while
it is changing the file.
Typically, it works something like this:
cp DevelopersGuide.doc,v ,DevelopersGuide.doc,
make changes to ,DevelopersGuide.doc,
mv ,DevelopersGuide.doc, DevelopersGuide.doc,v

Check for existence of both files. Diff them, decide which version
is correct. Choosing the ,v file, you may throw away your newest change.
choosing the ,*, file you may only have a partial file depending on when
the commit proccess died.
