actually no CWS was integrated on the development DEV300 after the 
release OOO340 was branched off, while on OOO340 release relevant CWSes 
were integrated.
so OOO340 contains the latest and greatest stuff.

if it is possible to convert HG heads to SVN branches, that would be the 
way to go.

i still think it makes sense to go a step further and actually merge all 
finished CWSes into OOO340 using HG first, because that is by far the 
easiest way and doesn't have any technical pitfalls.
