However, do we want to support 2.x for some extended time during the
tooling transition to 3.x for everyone?  One way to do this is just land a
constant stream of point releases on the 2.9.x branch.  Another way could
be to branch a 2.x long-lived feature branch before merging in 3.0.0 and
continue to work on that for as long as we think we need to (sorta like
python 2.x and 3.x are both long lived).

Personally, I'de prefer to jump all-in on 3.x and do at most do a few 2.9.x
point releases.
