Us too. We *always* tag and do a clean fetch from CVSNT before any 
release build, but we do also include internal version strings in our 
shipped "products" so that we can confirm the internal version info 
of *every* source file that was used to build them. Please make sure 
that we can still include something equivalent to those internal 
version numbers in our source files...
