Some of FreeBSD's features are now in 1.12.5, but use different
names/semantics, and so on.

Tag expansion for example is now using a more generic feature.  I'd
rather not add those kind of hacks back in since it is officially
supported now.  Should be easy for the appropriate teams to adjust their
CVSROOT/options file.

If you have any others I've missed let me know, I am still, albeit
slowly, merging the stuff back we're missing (as is/was evident with -j
and -q), but I am doing this piecemeal in order to submit issues to the
