In my first little experiment it left a slight trace of the removed revision:
I removed r1.2 from a ,v with three versions (r1.1, r1.2, and r1.3)--it seemed
to do all the right things except there is a trace left of r1.2 in that the
first version in the , v file is now r1.1 (with the correct content) and the
third version in the file is r1.3 (with the correct content).
I suspect (but don't have the opportunity to try right now) that if I
attempted to remove the last version, it would do all the right things.
