I've heard that rumored, but there's nothing indicating that in the release 
announcement.  There are forward looking statements in there: "tarballs... for 
the last 3.4 series and probably for 3.5 as well."  I take this to mean that 
there's an intention to have a 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 release, etc, but past 3.5, the 
release won't be packaged as a tarball.  If this is the case, even if it's just 
for 3.5, it would sure help reduce confusion to give this "release of packages" 
(even if it's just a buildout and the KGS for that release) a name other than
