That tagged version of the client is going to be the only one that
will work with the 1.6.0 server release.

My *personal* opinion is to generally use the latest heads of the
default branches of the client and server. The reason is twofold:

- Default branches always contain the latest QA'ed code that will go
into the next release and are generally contain many bug fixes that
the released version doesn't;
- It provides the Rabbit development team with valuable testing before
a release is made;

However, many people will prefer either to have what they consider to
be a stable release or they don't want to have to play around with
source control.

There is also the issue of repeatability - the head of any branch is
always a moving target, whereas a release isn't.

Which brings me onto a pre-emptive strike - if you do decide to use
the latest head of default, make sure that you don't use the hg tip
command, because it just gives you random junk.
