I would prefer two releases and a minimum of 12 months.  That way if
the time-based releases slip, we still guarantee two releases with
backward compatible code.  If we release more often, we guarantee at
least 12 months of backward compatibility.

Following the rules above, if 3.3 will be released more than 12 months
since the release of 3.1, it would be OK to remove the code now.
