Users that require newer bits that we ship in GA can just rebuild the 
relevant components from srpm in koji and ofcourse they get to keep the 
broken bits by doing so.

And FYI to all those that gloriously want to upgrade and claim that it's

inetd-style socket activation is borked in .35 ( users need to downgrade 
to .34 or add StandardOutput=socket if they cant wait until 36 goes out ).
