Wow, two updates- is that a record in the smallest number of updates for a
new point version? ;P  Just out of curiousity, why bother making that a
new version? Why not make 3.5 what will be 3.6, and 3.6 this 3.5 with all
of these new features polished and debugged?

Not to question the wisdom of the elders or anything, just wondering. ;)
