I agree with Greg. 1.3.4 really seemed to be a step too far (at the time) to do anything useful with. I'm not griping, it was a means to an end, and very necessary. 1.3.5SVN is more stable, and with so many ubuntu/debian users these days, you'll get less useless bugreports about 1.3.4 problems which have been fixed a long time ago.
Also we keep seeing people on the list with problems with 1.3.4 which is 9-12 months old ??. If going to use the bleeding edge, it might as well be the extreme bleeding edge, then at least feedback to the devs is timely and useful.
Many thanks for your packaging efforts as usual.
