I never knew about this feature in CVS.  I thought you simply used `cvs
remove'.  It's worth adopting in my RCS work.

Concerning your proposal, what is wrong with simply specifying the "dead"
state by doing:

  co -r -sexp RCS/*


  co -r -srel RCS/*

If you're working on a release.

RCS doesn't check-out the files having a "dead" state in either case.

I'd prefer definining an alias or writing a wrapper shell script that
explicity specifies the state to get the behavior rather patching my RCS

If you want your patch to get far, you may want to use context (-c) or
unified (-u) format.
