Do you have an example?

In other areas of CVS we enforce certain rules "that are not a good 
idea".  For example, by default, you can't commit as root.  You can 
compile it to do it if you want but by default it is off.  

I suggest we do the same for this revision setting "feature".  If 
people want to use it, they can #define the appropriate macro.  
However, it would be off by default.
