Agreed.

I think a branch isn't necessary at the moment, it can be done later if
needed.  And CVS already archives stuff for us, the code can be always
retrieved with "cvs diff -r 4.21 -r 4.24 checklink".  So as far as I'm
concerned, just reverting the stuff and proceeding from the 4.2.1
baseline would be ok.
