Whats a deprecation release? We deprecate stuff in every release ... 
does it make sense to do a release just to deprecate anything we might 
not have yet? And if you add deprecations, wouldn't you add features to 
move to?

I'm not a fan of 3.0 just being 2.9 with deprecations removed either. 
Why not add new features as well? Sure, we should be *way* more careful 
about breaking back compat there, but who cares if a few features are 
introduced? Doing a release is a lot of project steam - why waste it ?
