But it might.  There *have* been changes to the libraries between 3.3.2.3
and 3.3.5.  No, I don't think any interfaces have changed.

But just to err on the side of caution, would anyone doing what Santiago is
doing PLEASE recompile their packages against the latest versions of the
potato libraries shortly before the potato freeze?

Mixed slink/potato systems are temporary things.  Potato will be around for
a long time.  So let us please make it internally consistent.
