Why not do releases like tomcat/httpd do it? Go ahead and
rollup/release 1.2.16, then vote on the stability. If there are
problems, roll up another release (1.2.17) for more testing. Repeat
until you have a tarball that is ready for production, that way you
still don't risk the chance of breaking something when you re-tag the
non-rc release and rebuild the tarball (however small that chance may
be) because if you do, you'll have to bump the version number and
re-release anyway.
