I think we'd need to renumber it to 2.3.6 at least, otherwise there's the 
problem of distinguishing between the two. I'd _hope_ that all the 
downstreams will have picked up the patch (if you know of someone who hasn't, 
let me know and I'll kick them for you if it would help). 

But I'm certainly thinking if there's a 2.3.6, it's going to be 2.3.5 with the 
email fix and the unicode repr() fix, and that's it. No windows or Mac 
binaries - they'll be pointed to the perfectly fine 2.3.5 binary installers.

And no, I'm not doing another 2.2 release :)
