I try to deal with regressions first and other bug fixes second.
After that, I look at things that add new functionality.  I try to
look at the new stuff in roughly chronological order, as you would see

If other folks have feedback, as they did on your 12/17, 1/31, and
even the 2/2 posting, I generally let that get sorted out before I
look at it.  I apologize that I haven't responded to your queries
about posting a v3 vs updating v2.

To answer that question, it's much simpler for me to deal with a
fresh, clean new series than it is to tweak things in an
already-posted series, partly because a series with discussion other
than simple acks and reviewed-bys looks more like work-in-progress.
