Just for the protocol: the vc pkg xemacs ships, still contains that
| C-x v c runs `vc-cancel-version'
| `vc-cancel-version' is an interactive compiled Lisp function
|   -- loaded from "vc"
| (vc-cancel-version NOREVERT)
| Documentation:
| Get rid of most recently checked in version of this file.
| A prefix argument NOREVERT means do not revert the buffer afterwards.
| Invoked with:
| C-x v c
