Exactly my point. Nonetheless we have seen and will continue to see 
those who, despite being advised to wait before using 1.3.4+ do it 
anyway. It seems the best we can do is to try to keep them from doing a 
lot of work in unstable versions only to reach a frustrating dead-end 
and not be able to load the file into the stable version. Unfortunately 
there are many tantalizing elements in the unstable versions, which is 
part of the fatal attraction, I guess.
