I understand your concern, however, the old version is actually a beta
(the complete version number is 2.1.beta1-27).  The new 3.0-8 version
should be at least as usable as the old version (there were some nits
in the earlier 3.0 versions, but that was more the fault of my packaging
than of the original source; those are all fixed as far as I can tell,
thanks to all the folks that tested the 3.0 versions!)

Anything that happens to go wrong anyway should be fixable quickly.
