In fact I wanted to find these lines of code but I did not find them.
Thanks for the patch, it works nicely. I pushed it.

It would save only a few thousand bytes. I'll see, if it is an easy win.

I agree. :) We could get rid of a lot of useless code. But the index at
the end of res file also is of type RSC_VERSIONCONTROL and we need that.
