As I've just said in another post, it is not a "trick" any more than any
inventory parameter is a "trick."

And I think a better analogy is someone is willing to give you $5 or

But, this is all silliness now.  The point has been made: 

"strict commits" is NOT a selection criteria for "explicit" tagging
