Charlie seems to doubt the need for this, but I think it is good for us to
treat 3.0 as a stable branch so we can put out a 3.0.1 if we fine some
significant errors in the next few months before Ben's (3.1) work is complete.

GEOS is a bedrock component for a lot of packages so I think at least some
degree of maintenance of a stable branch is called for.
