Thanks for your answer.

Does 5.3.3 introduce any new deprecated functions (or anything else)
relative to 5.3.2?

I have to admit that I don't follow PHP development particularly
closely.  Would it be possible to briefly explain why 5.3.2 is
unsuitable for release, and 5.3.3 so much better?

I did see from the changelog of the experimental upload that there are
some security fixes, but the other couple of bugs explicitly mentioned
there didn't sound particularly critical.
