Almost everybody has switched to 4.1+, but I've heard that sony people
might still be using 4.0.x based compiler.  
On the other hand, there has a substantial number of bug-fix patches
that  were applied to 4_0-branch, so it seems to me that it would be a
good thing to make a final release.

I'm currently traveling and will not be back to "stable" working
place before end of next week.  Consequently, a 4.0.4 release will
be at the end of this month, preceded by a pre-release around 15th of
January.  After that, I agree with everybody that we should retire
