No, absolutely not, -1.  The RM is supposed to be working on a checked-out
tree and testing it thoroughly *before* they tag that very same tree.
You have to keep in mind that generating a broken tarball costs anyone
who tests that broken tarball a great deal of time.  The RM needs to be
careful when they generate a tarball, even when we generate one on a
regular basis, because otherwise no one will bother to test them.

We can use the CVSROOT/taginfo file to call a program like
that generates a message when a tag is applied.  Sorry, I don't
have any examples since I've never done it before myself.
