I've done so.  The curious may be, well, curious to know that I needed
to use CVS 1.10 to do it.  CVS 1.11 client complains that the server
knows nothing about '--'.

>From this point on, if you have a patch that you believe should go on
the branch please say so.  I would appreciate it if no one checked
anything in on the branch without talking to me first, so I can keep
track of what is going on.  Getting things on the branch at this point
is pretty easy, but do ask first.

The branchpoint is binutils-2_12-branchpoint; the branch is
binutils-2_12-branch.  CVS will be done tagging the latter in five or
ten minutes.

Testing the branch is always greatly appreciated.  I know of some
Windows (DLL-related) problems, and some Sparc problems, and the
mysterious Cygwin failure that I can't reproduce.  More status will be
forthcoming, I hope.
