for others: it's about being able to change the orientation of a pdf (e.g. 
landscape -> portrait).

it's hard to say without actually seeing the patch, but i'm all for polishing 
3.5 without spending too much time doing so as it keeps progress visible even 
if in a rather trivial fashion. i remember how 1.1.2 just sat there for the 
longest time while kde2 was hot on the burner in development; a 1.1.3 
would've been nice ;)

i'm just hoping we don't turn too much energy onto 3.5.x or threaten it's 
stability by trying to "cheat" a 3.6 release by stuffing crap into 3.5. 
feature additions open up the possibility for bugs, require forward porting 
(in a good world, anyways =), possible documentation changes, etc, etc...
