Yeah, that would be ideal in my opinion. [3]'s package was last updated in 
March, and probably depended on some functionality in tap-plugins not yet 
released. If whatever that functionality is is now in [1] then yeah I'd say go 
ahead and make it depend on the non-cvs version.

Not sure I see the reason why this should happen. Isn't it normal to keep -vcs 
packages around in case others want to try out the latest commits?
