When we want to move to 3.0 it has to be planned out well and documented.
There is going to be API breaks on a lot of different fronts, which might
mean it might be best to hold that release off for 12 months while
everything is sorted and people have time to catch up. As it will break
plugins again this isn't something we should just drop and hope that it
sorts it self out.

I know there has been a QEP for it start but I'm going to just start a wiki
checklist and we can put some notes in that for now.  This is something we
will need to move together on and make sure everyone is ready for,
including users.
