Uh, no. We have never "retroactively added" anything to any branch.
I don't know enough about the innards of CVS to know what its internal
representation of this sort of thing is, but all that actually happened
here was a "cvs add" and a "cvs commit" in REL8_4_STABLE long after the
branch occurred. We would like the git history to look like that too.
