I agree, lets continue to support 3.3 for a while. I think many users
out there still use Eclipse 3.3 (e.g. those who use a commercial Eclipse

Its easy to manage this. Even if we use Eclipse 3.4 for development we
could define an 3.3 as target environment, this way we only see the 3.3 API.

However if we find a new killer feature in 3.4 we could switch :-)
