Sounds good.

I'd prefer 1.1.0 rather than 1.0.6, even if I don't like branches of
branches in CVS.

There many, many changes in CVS that may go in 1.1.0. I can't tell
all of them, but it includes: newer autotools, {Pre,Post}-Proxy-Type
stanzas, support of ${Cisco-AVPair[n]} syntax, -n and -p options in
radclient, changes in rlm_attr_filter, new rlm_sql_log & radsqlrelay...

It'd be nice to have all of that in 1.1.0, but it'd mean to back-port
a lot of things. I'm starting to think perhaps it's easier to branch
CVS head and to downgrade a few files to undo IPv6 work (less than 10
files?) and some other things we keep for 2.0.
