We ( me and you),  already had this talk :D  I was targeting the other
packagers with my mail :D .
I would gladly here Bondrov's POV about this... same build for both abi
or separate branches ?
And that we need 3.x abi is obvious ...
if not now , next year for sure..., and beside fedora , is arch, sabayon,
fuduntu,a.s.o , they did not drop the 2.7, of course, just follow the 
policy ...2.7 is no longer developed period... like gambas2, qt3, gtk2 



MRB ain't no shit




Talk is cheap, show me the code.
