IMO, the "revision" of a word document or any other document can and
should be maintained independent of the version control system revision
numbering scheme. Keyword expansion in binaries has the potential to
corrupt so it's not really an option anyway, not even with PVCS.

Subject: More keyword expansion questions

        I have another keyword expansion related question.  We are
version controlling some Microsoft office documents along with our
source code, and would like to use a keyword expansion in those
documents so users can see what revision they are looking at.  This can
be setup, but you must know ahead of time the length the text will be.
On another project that used pvcs, they solved this issue by specifying
that any keywords when expanded would take a fix set of space, using
blanks to make up for any characters that the keyword didn't need.  Is
there any way to do this in CVS?  Thanks for any help.
