   While it makes it simpler, it does mean that there's almost no
   point in having those headers at all.  It's tempting to just make a
   CVS keyword that expands to the list.

That wouldn't work, a CVS keyword is local to each file.  I sure
wouldn't want CVS to go about updating hundreds of files just because
it feels like it.  I think the GDB people have such emacs hack for it
to update all the files.
