Er, it takes a little bit more than a prerelease to ship as a product.
Believe me, productizing it and making it supportable is a lot of work.
If companies like SCO and ISC shipped V.4 out the door anytime soon,
this newsgroup would be even more clogged than it is already with moaning
and groaning about V.4 and the bugs, the omissions, the unsupported hardware,
and the gall of ISC or SCO to take your money, blah-blah, etc.

You should all be glad V.3 is in the bad shape it's in today... :-)
