  Sure, but:

- the build is clean
- daily coverity scans show it's clean (barring some Coverity issues)
- it has a large number of test cases which run on every push to github
- many people are running v3 in production.

  There are a number of incompatible config changes between v2 and v3.
More than there were between v1 and v2.  There are more changes coming,
too.  But we want to release v3 now, so that the upgrade path is one of
least pain.

  But... the similarities between v3 and v2 are more than the
differences.  All of the proxy config is the same.  As is the virtual
servers, listeners, and 75% of the module configurations.  The changes
are to simplify it, and make it better.

  i.e. v3 has less code than v2, and does more.
