I've just discovered that this rolling 'stable' tag system is not going 
to work. Usually, the names of jars changes on each release. Doing a 
'cvs tag -F stable' does not remove the stable tag from deleted files. 
This means that doing a 'cvs up -r stable' will fetch a bunch of old, 
tagged jars, and break everything.

So instead we'll just have to use stable tags with a date suffix: 
stable-20030626, etc.  I'll remove the 'stable' tag altogether, to 
reduce confusion.
