I found a separate tape, labeled "August 23, 1992", with a matching cover
letter (signed by Kirk McKusick) saying "This is a distribution tape
for the 4.4BSD-Alpha release ... The binaries and kernel on the
tape support the HP 9000/300 68000-based workstations...".  Is this
the holy grail?

I would guess the "4.4BSD snapshot 4/1/92" is pre-release.
