[Glass] Does Zodiac port work on 3.2.x ?

The bugfixes for 3.3.0 that  were needed to get Zodiac working[1] are 
covered by  internal bug 45873  "GsSecureSocket incompatibilities with 
GsSocket"). Bug 45873 is mostly image level fixes, but there is one 
critical patch to the vm code and it appears that the vm-level change 
has not been backported to 3.2.x and at this point I don't believe that 
we have any plans for a 3.2.16 release (we released 3.2.15 back in May).
