Yesterday I downloaded the development snapshot of Indy9 from Mirror 1
(Fulgan.com) via the HTTP link.  For reference the last snapshot I have been
using was downloaded sometime around Sept 2005.  I was comparing the
differences between the two builds and noticed something odd with four of
the files.  The units appear to have been reverted to earlier revisions.

Here is a listing of the units.  I have include my files' date stamp and the
"reverted" files' date stamp as well as the revision history numbers found
in the unit release notes:

  IdCoderMIME.pas
  03/26/2005 -> 10/08/2002
  Reverted from 1.3 to 1.0.

  IdIOHandlerSocket.pas
  03/31/2005 -> 04/24/2004
  Reverted from 1.6 to 1.4

  IdMessageCoderMIME.pas
  03/26/2005 -> 01/05/2005
  Reverted from 1.14 to 1.12

  IdSocketHandler.pas
  03/24/2005 -> 04/26/2004
  Reverted from 1.4 to 1.2

Does anybody know if this was an intended reversion?
