I agree with most of Justin's quoted comments - tagging just indicates a
release is in progress, not complete, and anyone who thinks otherwise is
being unrealistic.

HOWEVER, I do think that tarballs should NOT appear at
http://subversion.tigris.org/tarballs/ until after they are official.

I'm not entirely sure dev@svn is the right place to mention the existance of
the waiting-for-test tarballs, but I can't think of anywhere better.
