Perhaps 1.3.4 should be deleted from the download sites or at least
marked clearly as deprecated. Certainly it should not be included in
any repository. It was just a prototype, not for production, and is
not currently being upgraded or fixed AFAIK. All the effort is going
into 1.3.3.x or 1.3.5 (someday to be 4.0?)
