Yes, I'm more and more coming to the conclusion that we can not go on
like this.  I'd advocate dropping 3.4.2 completely -- we don't have many
other packages where we try to maintain an old version and a new version
parallel to each other.  (Also, a 3.4.2 package would need to do the
whole does-it-come-with-X-or-not-or-should-we-use-a-newer-version dance
yet again.)

Standard way of getting a discussion started:
"So, unless I hear any objections in the next couple of days, I'll make
it so."
