No, "what" is a word that is used to introduce some types of
questions. ;-)

The value of XX and YY, however, is unlikely to be known accurately
until there *is* a 2.4, rather than merely an alpha for 2.4.  Alphas
generally contain things that are not in the final release, sometimes
debugging or logging code, sometimes experimental things, sometimes
things that are implemented only in an early form and are expected
to change.
