I understand what it's doing. I don't understand why they didn't
rewrite simple utilities like this to avoid ugly bullshit just in the
name of copyright notifications. I understand the BSD license of the
time required this sort of notification, but why not either reimplement
the utility or write the notification in a manner that doesn't require
stupid tricks?

Paul, do they still use the RCSid stuff? Just out of curiosity.
