As I've stated in the past, I want us to run this code on svn.collab.net
*before* we release it to the public in a *final* tarball. There also
exists a policy (a soft one, one of our own making, but IMO a *good* one) of
only running publicly released code on svn.collab.net. Taken together, that
means Brane's work sees it first public release in 1.4.0-rc1, at which time
svn.collab.net and other folks who accept RCs for testing can start playing
with this code.

So, in terms of in which release to put this stuff:
   -1 on 1.3.2
   +1 on 1.4.0
