I'd not be at all surprised if 3.2 slipped a bit from that.  ("3.1

Strongly recommend against diving into the import of development
versions.  It'll not only potentially cause a fair bit of pain due the
'bug of the day' problems, but it can also tie peoples' hands if they
want to create a new release branch and the compiler just isn't ready.

Given that you indicated that the biggest problems (as opposed to
missing targets) you listed had already been fixed for 3.2... well, if
it were me, I'd consider back-porting the patches.
