That reminds me: I really must take another look at BK for my stuff.

At the moment I'm using say "fred.c-" for the previous version etc (and 
"fred.c+" for something finished but not quite ready to install).

I've also renamed entire directory trees to sub-tree under "OLD" etc :-)

SCCS/RCS are history as far as I'm concerned; I never quite got the hang 
of CVS (which OpenLDAP uses); and I've heard all sorts of horror stories 
about GIT to keep me away from it...
