It's certainly possible. Not a great message in one sense, but it would do 
the job for now. Despite not much in the way of QA, it's arguably less 
relevant to commend 2.0.

But if we did, it would still want a version number distinct from true CVS, 
i.e. instead of "current" for packages. Perhaps something like 2.1a-cvs or 
2.1a-interim? We'd also need a doc rebuild to make sense. Similarly what 
about the prebuilt configtool and ecosconfig? The only prebuilt versions 
that work with cygwin are on ecoscentric's site.

So even a quicky respin isn't quite trivial but it wouldn't take long. Not 
something to announce with a fanfare though.
