I'm sorry if this was discussed before and I missed it, but...
How is jquery3 compatibility wrt to previous releases? 
Will they break 1.x and 2.x compatibility in the future?

My fear is that shipping a single binary and just bumping the version could 
(at some point) break a lot of legacy code needing 1.x or 2.x.

Wouldn't be better to introduce separate packages for the two pre-3 branches 
and the two post-3 branches, as to avoid surprises for the future?

Just my 2c, Luca
