I seriously disagree.  I thought a lot about this before I posted, because
I was trying to figure out why the site said you needed the KEYS file to
be up-to-date before the tag.  The reason is simple.  If I just downloaded
the 2.0.17 tarball, and I want to get the KEYS file, I am going to go to
CVS, and grab the one with the 2.0.17 tag.
