One technical note that affects both Commons and Taglibs is the fact that
CVS branches are global to an entire repository.  Therefore, if one taglib
(or Commons package) creates a branch "rel2", then nobody else can use
that name.  We might want to think a little more about the long term
impacts of this little detail.
