You can always travel in time using CVS. Looking at ChangeLog,
seems like 0.1.11 is a good candidate, otherwise you need to ask
Owen and Omer.
I have nothing special against that. But, another solution I can
think of is to give explicit permission on an specific version of
the code, to be redistributed in binary form with PuTTY,
something like that... Roozbeh, what do you think?
Other than that, Dov, feel free to do everything, you are the
father afterall ;).
