I would love to see some way to tag new versions of contrib modules.  A
large percentage of time-consuming (arguably time-wasting) support
requests I get is because people are using an old 4.5 version of a given
module.  But how should they know that I merged in a whole string of fixes
in the past week?  Unless they know how to review CVS, there is no way for
them to know.  (Currently I have to get them to open the module file in a
text editor and to look at the Id tag at the top of the file)

What about using letters for modules?  4.5a, 4.5b, 4.5c.
