Great!  Less work for me.  :)

I think this would be a good idea, as otherwise the search of val-tags
will be run once for each possible form of the commitid.

Also, commitids should be cached at commit time as well as when they
are found in RCS files.  CVS started doing this on tag creation for
other branches and tags a few releases back  It's silly to wait for
the first update to insert them into val-tags - it only triggers an
unneeded recursive search.

| I'll post my patch after some more cleanups ... soon;-)


Sounds good.  I'm looking forward to seeing your patch!

Regards,

Derek
