Thanks.  Do other people have comments on the list?

I'm going to add one vendor tag that should be uncontroversial to the 
list.  /tags/gcc-1766 is a misnamed Apple tag, and there is already a 
properly named copy with identical contents at /tags/apple/gcc-1766 so 
deleting /tags/gcc-1766 should be safe.
