We still have six months to find and fix any of those. The release branch keeps
the code, and it's trivial to make a 2.3.1 with the zlib flag flipped to False,
may the need arise. Hopefully, any further zlib bugs won't leave us unable to
produce a working 2.4... (and I'll prefer to not plan for the worst, otherwise
we'd be working on a darcs->git conversion tool instead of darcs).

(But I don't insist, really. It's just nice when you can throw the legacy mess
out of the window.)
