I would also be skeptic if it wasn't for the fact that the proposed "fix
release" is *very* limited in scope. It really should be named 3.4.1
IMHO. Anyway, as Daniel said, I follow Doug's lead on this - and I do
agree that we want a solid 3.4 because 3.5 will probably turn into
something really demanding. Just a hunch.
