Yes, to me a branch means there is a change in there, a tag just means 
we had a checkpoint of some sort.
So with this scheme I tend to think of the beta branch as a short lived 
branch because there is indeed a change.    But I guess that it is 
recorded is the main thing. It was the copy and change that tripped the 
radar (still on reflex, still trying to shut down).

Thanks for the explanation.
