As I recall, this came about because it was sensed that the features 
added to 1.3.4 were a very big jump, so 1.3.3.x became an anomalous 
series that needed to be officially released due to the many useful 
changes from 1.2.x.

My sense of this is that you have:
A stable version, with a developmental version (svn) mainly related to 
bugfixes, rarely something might be backported, yet for various reasons 
highly unlikely any backporting will happen from 1.3.5 to 1.3.3.x
The unstable version is a mix of added features and bugfixes. Here 
again, there is a bit of an anomaly related to the qt3 to qt4 jump.
