If we say that if we release for signatures:

    subversion-1.5.9-PRERELEASE.tar.gz (using your example)

and that we yank it for whatever reason, that it means that we can not release:

    subversion-1.5.9.tar.gz

then I'd be fine with this, I guess.

What I'm opposed to (and unclear whether this is what is being suggested) is
that we have subversion-1.5.9-PRERELEASE.tar.gz that says it is "Subversion
1.5.9" and extracts as such and there is a *different* subversion-1.5.9.tar.gz
that we eventually released.

So, in short, once we release -PRERELEASE for signatures, it means that we
can't turn around and reuse that version number for a 'final' release.

Does that make sense? -- justin
