I agree. I think it'll be a while before 3.0.0 officially
releases. But if Andrew insists on no experimental code in
HEAD then the only way around that is for him to maintain
a separate 3.0 branch.

Andrew - this is not as easy as it looks, you have to watch
for people adding updates in one branch and not another. I'm
usually good about adding updates to all active branches
but sometimes the differences make that very hard (witness
the forward port of the 2.2.4 trans2.c code I'm going to
have to do soon).
