Not sure at this point. I would love to give some sort of metric "major
releases every 4 months" -- but I don't spend all my time on PackageKit
and it depends on how much "spare" I've got left. I'm also working on
other projects adding PackageKit functionality, and if they require the
0.4.x API then that might hurry things up.

I don't think you should be shoving 0.4.x into a stable distro series --
at least not for a while at least. I want to get the session interface
nailed down in the next few weeks and then we can start building on

Sorry for the wishy-washy answer.
