I understand that you can use same pkgsrc for all -- that is why I made
this suggestion (to tag at same time).

But I am assuming that some packages built on 1.6 may not work properly on

Do you use the same packages all built on 1.6 on your 1.5 systems?

(I can't think of any examples. Maybe some linux compat packages are
different without having different version numbers?)
