as i see it, it will only spread more confusion. it looks like that
1.6.1A was created from 1.6.1 sources, which is not true. 1.6.1 is not
a "sync with -current", it's made from separate branch where only *some*
fixes from -current were pulled up. you couldn't say from 1.6.1A which
features/bugs made it into netbsd-1-6 from -current either.
