If you have to admin some CVS files, this command often only takes
internal revision numbers (e.g. outdate -o). When branching of a whole
tree of directories it's often easier to look at the result (e.g. with a
graphical frontend)  when they branch off the same version. And it's
easier to get the version numbers into some C code than the tags.

We use forced check in only for soem of our code, the rest just uses tags
and we no longer care about revisions.
