To manage all the directories 'by hand' is IMHO a big overhead. I'd
have about 25 directories *per form* now! The data is very redundant.
I suggest you should try RCS for version control. It's much easier
then SCCS and - in addition - GNU make can automatically handle
those versions.

You just type

"ci file.c file.h file.fd ..."

to check in the named files in an archive. To check them out, you
similarly type

"co -l file.c file.h file.fd ..."

An optional parameter is provided to specify a version of a file.
That's all I do with version control. It's fairly simple and easy
to use.
