preparing for 0.4

Do we have any changes that we need to get in for 0.4? If anyone has anything that they would like to see changed/fixed
or added, please reply until the end of the week so we can estimate how long we need to wait.

As always, please check http://www.ros.org/wiki/point_cloud_perception/ChangeList for the list of changes.


An ideal plan would be the following:

* release 0.4 before Sunday

* release 0.5 quickly after that, with the main major change being an API-breaking removal of the ANN dependency, in the
hope that Marius makes FLANN faster for 3D queries

* release 0.6 quickly after that, with the possibility to 100% decouple PCL from ROS using a custom-based CMake system
(I vote Brian writes it ;) ). Also split point_cloud_perception into two stacks: one that will be experimental and one
that needs to become 1.0 for D-Turtle.



I will prepare a few pages so we can start the API review process as early as next week. I urge everyone interested to
participate, as the discussions might affect the way we use and develop PCL for the next year.
