I support the suggestion above. Trying to number within v3 
is going to wreak havoc on attempts to update properly.

p.s. To be perfectly honest, I didn't think a move to 
4-number was even necessary, but I think you'd know better 
than anyone else what is in the pipeline for rsyslog, and if 
those are major enough to require "major" number to be 
changed, then, yeah, it wouldn't make sense to see 10.x.x 
within a year or two.
