Merging to the release_1_6 branch

As I stated earlier, if you did not make point releases from a given  
release then it wouldn't be a branch- it would be immutable and  
therefore te default MO would be to make it a tag.  I'm all for using  
the correct semantics, but the semantics here are variable based on  
subsequent events and I don't know how else to explain that to you.
