I agree it's a potentially troublesome problem, for .dsp and .mak files.

I'm willing to accept the -ko flag on all .dsw, .dsp and .mak files to prevent CVS
substitution from occuring.  I'm unwilling to make these files binary with the -kb
flag, as that reduces the cvs commit email reporting to something like:

Index: FooFile.dsp
  RCS file: /home/cvs/scratch/FooFile.dsp,v
  retrieving revision 1.1
  retrieving revision 1.2
  diff -u -r1.1 -r1.2
  Binary files /tmp/cvsnfHdy81050 and /tmp/cvsIHawC81050 differ

Note the total absence of +/- details.  That's the part I found unacceptable.

The only remaining question ... why do we need the -ko flag in the first place?  I've
grepped for the '[' symbol in our .dsp and .mak files, which triggers the substitution,
and I found no occurances.  If you can point out the man page that details something
I've overlooked, please do so.
