Hmm, I'm confused. Not to contest but perhaps fill in more info.
A checked out file can normally only be committed if indeed, by
definition, the user has intentionally changed its contents
on purpose. The revision number bump should be expected in that
case and is only bumped for the files committed, not the whole
repo. The magic is only magic to cvs and ignored by others when
commented out in their usual syntax of C, sh, perl, etc. cvs diff
knows not to print the Id which would otherwise litter diffs with
superfluous chatter. It's mostly set and forget. The ident *char
can be omitted if the trivial const added to compiled code would
be untenable.

Are other massive projects such as FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD,
Xorg, XFree86, browsers, apps, etc that are currently using
Id everywhere experience issues. How could user easily match
a discovered source file/patch to its corresponding base
revision to work from.

Whatever works, food for thought, /user defers.
