Will 3.1 and 2.7 also be parallel releases?  (I ask, not having read
the 3xxx PEPS at all.)  

If yes, why?  While I can see a case for 2.6/3.0 being in sync -- new
features in 2.6 ease the transition to 3.0 -- I'd imagine that 3.1
would be better with a shorter cycle (6-9 months) because there are
more possible rough edges to clean up.  3.1 would likely include
bugfixes from the eventual 2.7, so 3.1 might also trigger 2.6.1, but I
don't think there's any harm if 3.1 contains features or incompatible
fixes that are unavailable to 2.x users.
