ACK!  I really hate that upside-down branching scheme you guys use.

Every time you do that you completely mess up my local patches as I've
done them to a working directory checked out from the trunk of course.

I suppose I can make a copy of it and try moving it onto your new branch
and hopefully that won't futz anything in my local copy.

It's really too bad you didn't start with ongoing development on the
trunk and make branches for releases and their management, like most of
the rest of the CVS users out there.  :-)  That way you wouldn't mess up
almost everyone's "stable" working directory every time you make a
release.  People who want current code could just check out the trunk
and stay on the bleeding edge forever while people who want stable code
would check out the release branch and only get maintenance fixes with
their updates.

Actually it's probably not too late to switch (and when creating a
release might be the ideal time), though something like that needs a bit
of pre-warning and lots of documentation.
