Hmm. I admit I hadn't thought of the local checkout problem. Your
suggestion sounds most sensible. The only concern I have is that
we may not graduate before the release. (I guess I'd better hurry
up with the proposal!) Maybe we could do both: leave 4.2.0 in
place for now and also create 4.2 (or 4.2.x like APR would). Then,
during the transition, we would drop 4.2.0. Does that seem like
a good plan?
