I downloaded RCS and had a look at it, but as far as writing
this book is concerned my needs are very modest compared to the
capabilities of RCS, especially because I'm the sole author.

So I'll probably stay with the simpler solution -- an archiver
such as 7zip.

But I may use RCS in the future, so thanks for the hint anyway.
