How hard and risky would it be to make this work with 3.6.2?

If that's impossible I'd prefer to negotiate on a timeline for a 3.7
release.  Let us reserve the initial 4.0 release for the release when we
consider the merge as finished.

The whole process should be driven by our relese manager.  All also with
the goal to balance the requirements of 3 and 4 well.  I'm confident
Karo is able to handle this quite well.
