Hey, I don't own viewcvs, of svn, for that matter, you could also dare 
to help a bit with this crazy archeological task, can't you?!? I looked 
back only untile 70777, and that point and a bit earlier there where 
already no 72s around, thus, right *nothing to restore*. Now we are 
learning that *even earlier* we had a 72. Fine. Now, after so many 
years, are we ****really**** sure that our users would consider an 
*improvement* a 72? I'm honestly not sure at all. Again, what the best 
C++ front-ends around do, by default? I'm sincerely curious.
