   This is an excellent reason for looking at releases, rather than
   leaving CVS as what we have instead of doing releases.

You know that looking at the release of the Hurd (latest release is
0.2, and was released in 1997 if I am correct) is quite useless. :-)

Still, is the unused code somehow filtered out from the source tree
when a release is made?
