CVS is a layer over RCS that lets multiple people work on the same
files at the same time, and automatically merges their changes at
check-in.  I don't see any point to it for a one person project.  RCS
is a lot simpler.  I use RCS for one-person projects and couldn't live
without it.  But I haven't found a reason to deal with the increased
complexity of CVS.  Is there one?
