Yeah, I've had similar thoughts....my only reservation about calling this 4.0 is we've always referred to the 4.0 release as being the "big one" that was 64-bit capable and had all of the new APIs.  This next release is not going to live up to that expectation, so I'd be leery about calling it that if the delivered 4.0 didn't have all of that promised stuff.

It occurs to me that if release 3.3 is going to have significant
structural differences, at least internally, so that a script that has
been tokenized with 3.2 will not be executable, we should think about
calling the release 4.0.  This would highlight to our user base that
they need to be sure that installing the new release does not
significantly impact their current operations.  To me, a release name
like 3.3 indicates minor fixes and enhancements and would surprise me if
an existing working script that happened to be tokenized should fail to
execute.  I might be more inclined to do some investigation before
dropping in the new release if it had a name like 4.0.  Just my two
cents...
