I just added for 3.3.1 version a trademark notice, I think this also 
should make it in the 3.4 tree.

but I also wondered on how " acknowledges ..." is now the 
right term. Should it now read as "Apache ack..." ? or "$(VENDOR) ack..." ?

In the past this was a duplication of work doing this for the about box 
plus the website. From my experience you will forget every release some 
important names, so I'd suggest to exchange tho long scrolling list to a 
link on the web,
