FWIW, I am afraid that whatever we choose to do we will
end up maintaining two branches. Option I will involve
taking a lot of time for 4.0 so we will end up making
intermediate releases. Option II will make very evident
the UI changes and while a lot of people will love it,
many people will still want the old look/feel.

I will be porting Symphony to FreeBSD. All of the work is
already documented in some way or another in BZ and I will
make sure it is properly referenced in SVN.

It will take some time thogh... I recently broke my system
with experimental compiler changes to the point that I
will have to reinstall it :(.
