My concern is that once we send a public email to any list, that version is
gone - hence, the tag should be laid down at that point. There should never
be any confusion as to, say, what the 1.1.4 release contains.

I'm not comfortable sending anything to any list saying 'this is 1.1.4'
(including to dev@svn soliciting signatures for approval) without having the
/tags/1.1.4 created first. If there's a problem with the 1.1.4 tag during the
signature process, then we would bump to 1.1.5 - not reuse 1.1.4.

Our downstream packagers just need to be aware that a release isn't official
until we send the announcement. -- justin
