I agree with Pedro here. I'm not sure it would be a good idea to put
"stress" on the project this way, though I DO think that some ongoing
"feasibility planning" for regular releases might be a good idea.

I've been wondering about a possible "3.5" release myself. Juergen and
others have mentioned *it*, but we don't seem to have a document for it on
the planning wiki.

Maybe we could skip a 3.4.2. release if we feel so inclined and include any
additional bug fixes in 3.5 with your suggestions here. At any rate, maybe
someone could start a 3.5 doc on the planning wiki. Maybe shoot for end of
normal 3rdQ?
