We had the extra point with openswan, and it did not really help us. If
anything, it just kept people much longer on openswan 2.4.x then they
should have been when openswan 2.6.x came out.

So the idea now was to just do 3.x releases until we do a 4.0. With the
regression test suite being used, everyone should really upgrade to the
latest 3.x release.

At least, that's the plan for now.....
