for this kind of decision, a positive response rather than a passive negative 
should be required.

every release is. i certainly think we ought to keep release 3.5.x updates 
that contain bug fixes, optimizations, visual elegance improvements, etc ... 
but doing feature development in the 3.5 branch will only serve to take 
pressure off of getting kde4 going.

what does this nice patch do?

personally, i'd rather see this happen on a case-by-case basis with a 
conservative approach favouring fixes and non-feature-changing improvements 
over feature additions rather than a full on unfreeze which would just be a 
pandora's box waiting to happen.

that's hardly feature development, though, now isn't it? =)
