Not with me. Version strings are important for tracking changes. How
can you tell which version of a file you have when reporting a
problem. It's OK for us but not for people who don't have cvs access.

You should use the -k flag when importing these files into other cvs
trees. The other solution is to grab the patches that many other
groups have used and use $Apache$ instead of $Id$.
