	Ah ! right ... yes, we had problems with legacy tags getting re-pushed
left and right and a fight to get rid of them. This is why I mentioned
notes, if you do:

	$ git fetch origin refs/notes/*:refs/notes/*

	you should be able to do:

	$ git notes add <git object>

	And then add a 'note' to the commit log, such as 'compiles nicely on
win32'. That is then shown as/when people do a 'git log' we can add the
notes fetch to the 'g' script I suppose to make that easier.

	Ideally of course; we'd want a standard format message: WIN32_BUILT or

	A shame indeed; happily the notes feature is not so worried about
adding / tweaking / removing notes, so ... any chance you could try
adding one for that known-good git hash (if you still have your tag
locally) ?

	Then I'll add a 'g' feature to pull the notes for everyone, and find
the last good windows build (unless you want to) ?

	Thanks !
