Yeah, well, I had really intended it as an either/or :).  I'm not against
further devolopment on the 3.3 line.  It's just that *I* don't have any
itches to scratch there.  Since I've been the only 3.3 developer for a very
long time, I wanted to sound out the community on the idea.  I still intend
to support 3.3, but we haven't had a valid bug report for many months :).
