Thanks!  That is indeed my intention, so I'll probably follow your advice.  But
will this mean that unsuspecting souls using CVS will get HEAD automatically? 
If that's the case, I'll add a nice warning about HEAD becoming _really_
unstable for a while, so I don't burn anyone.  So far HEAD has been the place
for users to get cutting-edge bugfixes, so at least I should warn them that
this may change in the future.

I've never used branches in CVS, so I didn't really know.  Feel free to expand
with further advice, as I'm sure it will be extremely useful to me.
