Great. Thanks!

I don't think we're going to upgrade to 4 for quite a while, if for no
other reason than we'd have to have our QA do a big regression test, and
it's not easy to convince them to do so without a compelling reason for
the change. (Unfortunately, although we're in the middle of upgrading
our compilers on all platforms, "We should go to 4.0 because 3.17
requires a minor change to compile with vc8 and gcc4" wasn't compelling

So it's good to know that you're still doing maintenance releases for
3.x until we're ready.

Again, thanks.
