Are you sure? What package versions do you need. I am pretty sure that the 3.4 
KGS has the latest stuff, except for the zope.app.publisher 3.5.xa* series, 
which caused a lot of havoc.

While I personally do not think that this is a good idea, I am open to the 
suggestion to fix the KGS versions for a particular Zope 3.4 release. For 
example, instead of having just a versions.cfg, we can expand the scripts to 
also produce release versions, such as "versions-3.4.0b2.cfg", which would 
never change.
