Well, we have two -1s and my lukewarm, "I think someone might care."

No requirement to use ALL CAPS in the tag convention, but we don't need
to regulate it.  Use what you see fit as long as:

1. You start with the module name, e.g. example-tutorial-some-tag
2. Be explicit, use words if you need them
3. Always tag your module _and_ docs-common:
  cvs tag -F example-tutorial-frozen-for-trans-20060120 example-tutorial/ docs-common/
4. Don't tag other modules that don't need tagging

Enough rules?  Ready for the Wiki?
