I believe the README is out of date.  Their website says that something 
like .80 and up work on 3.x.  I have used .84 to populate a 3.0.2 server 
just fine making only configuration changes like server locations, 
containers, and domain SID.  I did have to hack one script for my 
purposes, but that was only because my primary ldap server is over a 
greater-latency-than-local-lan link and replication takes a couple seconds.
