Re: rtag -r <tag> not tagging files in Attic???

Sounds like a bug to me.  If the -r option is given, then the rtag command
should apply the new tag to all of the same versions that have the existing
tag.  There may be a significant amount of time between the application of
the two tags, during which one or more files may become dead.

Note also that rtag MUST apply the new tag to files in the Attic if the
existing -r tag specifies a branch tag.  Adding a new file on a branch
causes this condition, and skipping it means that an actual release may
be unreproducible.
