That this comes up every now and then only proves that packagers are not
careful enough when they work on their packages.

It is already too easy to move an existing tag. Too easy to damage
something in CVS, because we use these tags as the build source. "man
cvs" and reading Makefile.common gives a clue.

If you're not willing to look under the hood, simply bump release, commit
and run make tag once more.
