I'm not sure we should. The provided file is corrupt, per the RCS file
specification. Type 'man rcsfile' and look at the spec for the author. Or,
you can read this:


If we want to be "nice" and go ahead parse the file, then I'd like to see a
very clear comment in rcsparse.py about *why* we're allowing for invalid

And note that we would still have problems round 'co' and its warning about
the invalid file.

Yup. The file is invalid :-)
