Of course it will depend on the time frame you have. May be for Phil,
its better to find a way archive the same functionality or he wants or
try to fix himself, or wait to other to fix it. I see that the work
made on GDA backend is realy advanced and may you want to see your
work on the main tree, then may be is better to use V3 and try to fix
the problem in a some way. Sorry I haven't time to see the Phil's work
to see if I can help or even find a way to archive, as a temporaly
solution, the same functionality.

I'm trying to get a library using V4, becouse my work will be too
later after V4 will be realesed, then I'm using and reporting/fixing
bugs on it. I found V4 more easy to archive my objectives. Of course
Phil's backend work have other priorities.
