2.5 Tag feedparser once in dormant before making any changes.

We should probably start having tag names that can accomodate the fact
that some transitions may be taken more than once (while that may not
be very desirable). Maybe tags should read (STATE is component state
before the transition -- one of PROPER, SANDBOX or DORMANT):

STATE_nn (where nn is a counter)

I'd be inclined towards using the latter.

Phil - If you want, I can take care of this (since I *might* have to
do the same for combo, though no step 3 there).
