v3.0 is stable, v3.2 is new features :) Broken releases make me grumpy!

The problem is that even with all the automated tests we've got, it's 
far too easy to break things even with small features. FreeRADIUS is too 
flexible for us to be able to test every possible configuration.

If someone wants to backport the jpath stuff from v4 to v3.2 then that 
should allow pulling data out of JSON. Or use e.g. rlm_perl - but that 
will likely have a performance impact.

But apart from security & bug fixes and documentation, we need to just 
leave v3.0 alone :-P
