  Sliding tags around at the request of hundreds of different
developers making thousands of changes to -CURRENT over that time
period is not very appealing.  However, all of our other options are
rapidly being shot down as well.  Peter raises some valid concerns
about the pains that branching CVS will cause.  They would have been
much more helpful if voiced to re@ a week ago, but that's another

  At the very least a tag is going down in approximately 24 hours.
