Some CVS things I like:

C-x v v can check out and in within emacs, using an emacs buffer to
edit the change log.

C-x v = diffs the current and checked in version.

C-x v g can look at the last checked in file and have the changes
highlighted in color with date, user, and version.

C-x v l gives me the change log.

C-x v ~ checks out old versions.

Those all work for RCS as well.  Here's my favorite addition:

(global-set-key "\C-xv-" 'ediff-revision)

although I could never figure out why

(setq ediff-revision-key "-") doesn't have the same effect by itself.

And all the buffers created by the above can be edited with the full
power of emacs.  Why bother going out to a command line?

VC is so great I never even learned to use the RCS commands.  :-(
