IANAVE (I am not a virus expert), you should be able to just scan the rcs
file and find most all viruses, RCS stores literal strings of the stored

i'd suggest to users (if they're not already)  keep the most recent
working version of the file (unlocked or locked) and thus making the whole
file available for the virus scanner.

hope that helps.  i had missed your message because the Virus Scanning
subject looked like spam.
