No. The *upcoming* version is at 3.4.0b1. All releases from the trunk
should be done using

`python setup.py egg_info -rb.dev sdist` which will result in a version
smaller thatn 3.4.0b1.

The one generated by the line above.

Right, we decided that some packages will receive that, others won't.
Things that were released before continue the current cycle
asynchronously from Zope 3.

Packages that weren't released before can get a new version number.

It will be "both".

Please not, I'm already relying on those version numbers.

See above.

Sure, I didn't notice that there is unclarity, but I see that the
current state isn't documented.
