ok, so, my plan is to create a release/4.0 branch from master in the next
24-48 hours unless theres some issue brought to my attention (CC me just to
be sure if theres an issue)

then wait 2 days or so and backport any newly found bugfixes to release/4.0
and then make the release finally

delays at any point are possible due to issues, lack of time or other.

as name i think kierans suggestion of Wu would make sense. IIRC we had
no name suggested by more than 1 developer. Please correct me if i
miscounted i did only briefly re-check the mails in the thread.

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give
it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For
even the very wise cannot see all ends. -- Gandalf
