Hi Christoph,

Option 2.  Make a new .74 as .79 with the correct encoding.  Then make a
.80 that merges it all together.  We will get rid of .74 and .78.  If
you're worried about development images of an early alpha, then add a
postScript to the .80 that fixes their MCWorkingCopy's ancestry (by
removing .74 and .78).

And, Christoph, _please_ understand the cost/benefit balance when
cultivating our Monticello model.  Remember what is stored where, and how,
and accordingly *keep the commit notes as close to one sentence as possible*!
Look at Marcel's commit notes as a guide.  Please write your implementation
notes and examples *in the code*, and NOT in the commit notes.  .74 is a
tome of text that would've forever lived in everyone's images, never to be
read again after next week.  And, please do NOT copy-and-paste the
descriptions of the merged versions into the new .80!

Thank you so much for all the great work you do, and please forgive me for
nit picking about lengthy commit notes.  I really do think it's important,
or I wouldn't.
