If you read http://www.isc.org/ you will find that 9.3.5-P1 has the 
security issues patched and that 9.3.5-P2 has performance and stability 
fixes for P1.  In other words you have a fix for the nasty, but you 
don't have the very latest fine tuning.

9.5.0-P2 and 9.5.0-P1 both exist and have a similar relationship, but 
you don't need them to address the security flaw that has everyone so
