Thanks for the patch, MBK.

Subversion includes rcsparse as a third-party project, but we have
actually checked in its CVS dir along with its files, so that we can
update our Subversion copy more or less like this:

   $ cvs up
   $ svn ci -m "Update to head of master."

So the best solution would be to commit this change upstream. I'll
take a look at the patch & talk to Greg Stein about getting it into
the master rcsparse tree.

The fact that we can also get a warning from RCS 'co' later on is
unfortunate, but it may not be fatal. The question is whether RCS
correctly reads the state correctly afterwards, since these lines tend
to look like this in the ,v file:

   date 2003.; author jrandom; state Exp;

If RCS doesn't read the state field, then we may have a bigger
problem, we'll see...
