Hmm, this is getting complicated in CVS. 

We need to change version numbers and I want to be able to update
translations and documentation before 4.0, but you don't want to use
this file format change.

So, perhaps we should create an xfce_4_0 branch in CVS at the rc4 tag
and do only the updates that don't really impact the code. After 4.0,
this branch can be used for bugfix releases 4.0.x.

New developments, 4.1.x releases, can then continue on the HEAD branch.

What's your opinion?
