        Oh.  But changing that would mean doing the wrong thing in the
        (pathological) case of a tag which is in some instances a branch
        tag and some instances a non-branch tag.  Maybe that's ok, but
        I'm kind of leaning toward having it do the right thing in that
case:
        address@hidden 269 $ cvs status
        cvs status: Examining .
