I see your point. I was concerned that the changes would be assessed in a tiny-point by tiny-point manner, which would obscure the view of the overall redesign. Also, I want people using the previous version to stop and think about their app design, not just expect that a couple of lines need to be changed. That's why the version has jumped to 2.90* in preparation for release as V 3.

    If you have rewritten and broken backwards compatibility, and you don't know of/don't care about the migration of existing users (I hear you saying, if it doesn't work then their design is bad and thus their fault), why not make it a new module entirely or a subclass? I'd be upset if I upgraded a module and found it was wildly different, requiring me to rewrite my app if I wanted to use it.
