CVS is part of a change management solution - it therefore needs to be
able to show you change.  Not showing you change would be an absolute
failure of the system and therefore you could just thow it away.

Never ever ever ever pay any attention to the version numbers (eg: 1.1)
- they are not for you to look at - they are an internal number used for
internal purposes (mostly).  For your own 'version numbers' use 'cvs
