I'm sure my opinion is already clear from other posts, but basically I
would take ask the question "does releasing 2.3.7 without CONDSTORE
support with replication be a regression"

The answer is no.  Replication has been totally broken from 
2.3.4 -> 2.3.6, including for CONDSTORE.  Releasing 2.3.7 from the
current state of CVS would fix many of those issues while not causing
anything which currently works to break.

Version numbers are cheap, and there are no regressions.

(I'm pretty sure the other CVS changes are all simple and sane as well -
I reviewed them last week to make sure we wanted to switch from 2.3.6 ->
cvs and it looked fine for us)
