sccs spews a lot of unwanted stuff on stderr --- which brings me to
another question. Isn't SCCS itself rather non cross-platform? I'm a
little leary of switching to the 1.2 bindings because I won't be able to
test it myself --- my debian box is at 1.1.1.

I've made all of the other changes, and I found a few places where the
user id was hard coded.
