I don't see the point in declaring a 3.0 unless we have some
sweeping change that merits it. I don't think we should do a
sweeping change unless we have a well laid out and agreed on
plan for how the transition works. So I would want to see the
plan discussed and agreed first, and then we can say "ok, and
we think we can do this in this timescale and so the version
at $DATE will be 3.0". Changing the version number should be
the last part of this process, not the first, in my view.
