Well, there are people who cvs update from the DRUPAL-5 tag, which means they 
can't get your module. I had a bug posted to my issue queue about that. I'm not 
sure how I feel about it. Maintaining 2 branches when you only support one 
Drupal version is a serious pain, IMO, and it's beyond a lot of developers.
