The justification for not doing this is that the 2.0.31 tarball is now
public (officially or not).  Now if we reroll a new tarball and someone
comes to us and says "I'm having a problem with 2.0.31", we will never be
able to know exactly what they are using.  Even just the simple matter of
creating a .tar.gz can create big differences between distributions, let
alone the question of buildconf.

Suggestion: Tag 2.0.32 at exactly the same place as 2.0.31 (possibly with a
bump for the netware stuff) roll a new tarball with that version, and
release that.
