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
