Yeah, I see it as a lot of extra effort to have one library that can do 
both 2 and 3.  It is easy to include extra scripts in a page.  And we 
could easily keep 3 development in an OL3 namespace or something similar.

If there is someone who wants to make a release in the 2.x series that 
allows people to try out 3.x stuff, then there would certainly be plenty 
of work to keep them busy.  This is not necessarily something I am 
personally interested in spending time on.
