I'm merely curious and interested in the decision-making process between 
the conflicting priorities of stability and being up-to-date: Thinking 
about the version currently available (3.4 here on my box) and the time 
scope (well, what's the time scope actually, there are many projects 
concerned?), what's the reason you would prefer to go with 3.2? Is 3.4 
too unstable and do you consider it unlikely 3.4 will stabilize until 
the transition is complete, or are there other reasons?
