Well ... we were all over the place, part of that was the limitations
imposed by CVS branch naming before.  For 1.5 we had a branch named
1.5-release, and 1.5-RC1, 1.5-RC2, and finally 1.5.  I think that naming
is fine and we should stick with it.

No objections here.

My outstanding changes are:

- Rototilling part display in mhshow
- No display of parts with a disposition of "attachment"
- Creation of a mh-mime man page to tie nmh MIME handling together.

Maybe ... 3 weeks for that all?  Or maybe a month.

Sounds good to me.
