Nice :)

However, does the same apply to themes? See http://drupal.org/node/137062

"...for sites that deploy Drupal directly from CVS, it helps if you commit
this change to the .info file for your theme. This is also a good way to
indicate to users of each theme what version of core the
HEAD<http://drupal.org/handbook/cvs/introduction#HEAD>of CVS is
compatibile with at any given time."
