As it turns out, the docs/conf/httpd-*.conf files also have post-tag
changes.  So changing/re-tagging them in cvs would be as complex as
changing the code.   

How about this?  comment out the ErrorDocument 401 lines in the
docs/conf/httpd-*.conf files, along with a comment line or two saying
that a patch exists, inside the tarballs.  Re-roll, re-sign, rename as
beta, leave cvs alone.  

Otherwise, we probably should document the bug somewhere.  If
"somewhere" is a file inside the tarball, why not just make the change
in the sample configs and be done with it?
