er... if I take the time to do them, they *help*, but I have a problem even if 
the patches and pristine tree are shrunk to nothing -- the actual contents of 
the repo are pretty big (and bigger after "make", but I guess that can also be 
worked around by doing "clean"...).

I admit I'm asking the RCS to do something that no-RCS doesn't accomplish 
either: being better than nothing is a hard task!  But Git seems to do it, so 
I'm just feeling wishful.
