you are completely right, The patches must have enough time to be
tested. To be honest there are only two more that I wish to include
into 1.3.4:

Currently, for few weeks already I'm using sawfish with all submitted
patches applied. But those two, I think are more useful than others.
The xinerama fullscreen turned out to be much more useful than I
expected at first, and that's why i want to apply it for everyone else
who uses xinerama. The stacking visibility is an issue with
transparency and already several people complained, also on IRC.

Well, I hope that we will not see too much regressions ... :)

no problem, we all have work to do, also :) Would be great of you
could test other patches, later.
