There's no effect; the final 3.3.x point release (hopefully 3.3.6) will be
released after 3.4.0 final, with the branch going into security maintenance
mode afterwards.

Currently I'd be fine with doing 3.3.6 in parallel with 3.4.1, but that is not
a requirement and I don't want to finalize that schedule yet.
