OK, so I ran a conversion first run the following:

for r in 2.89 2.90 2.91; do rcs -x,v -sdead:$r
./cvsroot/pgsql/src/backend/parser/Attic/gram.c ; done
for r in 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6; do rcs -x,v -sdead:$r
./cvsroot/pgsql/src/interfaces/ecpg/preproc/Attic/pgc.c ; done
for r in 1.7 1.8 1.9 1.10 1.11 1.12; do rcs -x,v -sdead:$r
./cvsroot/pgsql/src/interfaces/ecpg/preproc/Attic/preproc.c ; done

(in essence "pretend that these revisions deleted the file instead of
changing it")

The conversion looks nicer, but I notice we have a similar issue to
those three with src/interfaces/ecpg/preproc/ in release
tags/branches up to and including 7.4.

So, I'm going to try running another attempt additionally doing:

for r in 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 1.8; do rcs -x,v -sdead:$r
./cvsroot/pgsql/src/interfaces/ecpg/preproc/Attic/ ; done

... churn churn churn ...

and the result is that things are looking pretty clean :-)

You now need to decide if you can live with throwing away a little bit
of history for those four files to get a cleaner conversion.
