I think it is generally good to have an old .cs stream , so old timers
(or anyone else)
who, by some reason can't use MC, could easily get those files and do
anything they want with them.
This, btw, related to Keith's arguing that trunk changes is hard to
harvest because .mcz format is not malleable.

Also, i think, it is good to have an artifact, which we can easily
reproduce using bare tools by having a starting point (3.10 image)
and a set of changesets (Which again, defeats one of the Keith's
points against trunk).
