I never considered tag'ng for minor releases as having any importance,
since the tarball's themselves provide the 'tag' ... branches give us the
ability to back-patch, but tag's don't provide us anything ... do they?

That said, I can back-tag the whole source tree for past releases if ppl
do think it is important, its just a matter of knowing the 'timestamp' to
base it on, which I can do based on the dates of the tar files ...

Its not like tag'ng is hard to do ...
