As I noted, the revision lines are essential for reasonable source
control in our configuration managed system, where it is essential
that we can identify any version of any source by looking at it.
But in the GCC environment, which is by nature less controlled, and
which works more by differential patches, with many variations running
around, I agree that the revision lines should be deep sixed!
