the trouble with that, is that it affects performance.

sccs is about the same as any other local-store version control system.
(or others, even)
usual semmantics of that sort of thing are:

0. initialize a file
1. check out a file
2. check in a file
3. compare a file.


0. sccs create XYZ
1. sccs edit XYZ
2. sccs delget XYZ  (sends for "delta, then get", if you care ;-)
3. sccs diffs XYZ

there's a few other interesting features of it, but them's the basics.
