Small update,

I have gotten some positive reports, thanks for testing! So far, a bug
involving SKIP directory handling have been fixed. I still have one report
which I'd like to investigate more before getting anything in. In addition,
there seems to be performance problems on some files (with many deltas, such
as CVSROOT-*/modules,v etc.) due to some slow algorithms used in the RCS
handling. I'll try to speed it up a bit when it seems to work ok.
