the final state of our CVS repository.

Fine by me.
Since .hgignore files default to regular expression syntax and

My question is how to handle version number bumps in the Makefile.
Each of these will be a separate commit, so they can be backed out
individually if necessary, but does each one need to bump version
numbers, or is a single bump at the end of the series good enough?
Bump author version numbers as appropriate in the final commit. Don't
push until that's done. Package versions are Norbert's property.
Backing out will require a version bump in general, so no reason to
worry about this.
