Also there are the filtering regressions, the fixes for them cannot be 
backported to 3.3 easily, so +1 for releasing befor the bump.

If there are people interested in carrying on the merges, (thanks!) then 
maybe all changes before the bump should be included as well.

And ticket 6375 comes to mind, as far as I remember there were some 
fixable and some unfixable issues, it is definitely worth taking another 
look before the release.
