+1 from me. (With the caveat that "time will tell" is definitely the
ultimate answer. Plans may change unexpectedly, even though we don't
expect them to.)

PS. I'm surprised that Martin thinks that the -3 mode in 2.6 is not
helpful. But I trust he has ported a lot more code to 3.x than I have
personally. Are there other experiences?
