Such was my suspicion. The whole cvs export > svk import vendor branch etc 
has been great for speeding up site updates to my multisite install. This 
inability to track the latest stable branch will slow me down. Such is life :)

I've just subscribed to the drupal.org cvs commits mailing list and will 
work up some filters in Thunderbird for the modules I'm subscribed too. That 
way I should be able to figure out which is the best version, and when a new 
release happens for the modules I have installed.

I'll just have to keep updating my cvs export script to use the right tag.

This reminds me that I also need to tackle getting vcp setup...
