I completely understand what you've said (below). Perhaps I phrased the
question incorrectly. If so, I apologize.
My e-mail should have said something like, "Has anyone had good luck
with a recent version of the CVS sources? If so, what's the tag?"
Then again, maybe I've just been up too long. ;)
I do, however, plan to use the CVS version (I need some of the fixes in
CVS) and will certainly provide feedback on any issues I encounter.
