Huh???  RCS and CVS can read the files (correctly, and modify them,
correctly), and humans aren't supposed to touch the repository directly
anyway.  And if humans know enough about the RCS file format, they know
how to identify newphrases.  And the introduced newphrases will be
documented, so humans who happen to read the files will still understand
