I've been wondering for a while now would it actually make sense to stamp 
2.3.4 + fixes in current HEAD as yum 2.4.0 and leave the huge changes for 
2.5. Just the enormous speedup in 2.3.x thanks to sqlite would be well 
worth a new release IMHO (not to mention all the other goodies) and 2.3.4 
seems very stable to me. As an added bonus putting out 2.4 should shut up 
most of the "but apt is faster" whiners as well :)
