Not if I can avoid it. If I have to merge now, how can I merge the
next time? 

Copying over the files won't work (because of the few changes I had to
make), so I will have to apply patches. But how can I produce patches
if I have to diff against some CVS snapshot? I don't want to keep the
snapshot around, because that would mean nobody but me could merge the
code the next time.

Of course, if there was a 3.4.1 release or some such, merging would be
easier: I would now apply the diffs between 3.4.0 and 3.4.1, and the
next time the diffs between 3.4.1, and the then-current release.
