Who are we to impose our practises on someone else? ApacheLounge clearly
does *want* to ship it, as is manifestly evident by the fact it does it
so regularly. ApacheLounge can use whatever aribtrary criteria it
likes for creating its releases - as long as it makes sure there is
no confusion that they are ASF releases.

The BSD ports trees regularly contain builds that don't meet the above
btw. And I don't think I've *ever* come accross a Linux package that
corresponded to the tag.
