If we don't do it before 3.0.0, then we shouldn't do it until 4.0.0.

It's alright, theres a lot stuff that needs to be done before 3.0.0 can be
released anyways :)

I am not a fan of this option as you still have all the "issues" that
everyone else has brought up -- multiple builds/installs; The only thing
that's easier is how to get the code.

I forgot to mention before that spearate repositories also lets use better
control access.
