dist.sh is exempt from voting. We copy it off trunk onto 1.0.x before a
release if there are any changes. I'd rather not have to jump through
the hoops of merging.

Yup, but doing things the other way around doesn't stop you from getting
what you want. I don't think this is a big problem for people who need
to edit the svn_version.h and a well placed comment would solve that.

Yup we have two options of how to deal with this:

a) Point MICRO to PATCH, modify dist.sh and start doing merges of

b) Point PATCH to MICRO and do nothing else.

See, b is a heck of a lot easier...

Well I'd rather you just use the alternative I gave...
