Extra effort for you.

Well, but is there any point in sinking work into it?  It's not like it's
going last more than a couple of months.  Any work you put into 3.6 reduces
the polish on 4.0 by that much.

Porting rdeps to 3.6 then to 4.0 would put additional strain on their
respective maintainers, too.  4.0->experimental now and ->unstable when it's
released would minimize the amount of unnecessary work, while giving 4.0
more exposure.  It is stable enough for daily use, too.
