I think this plan is mostly about ensuring we don't drown in this
transition.  We're focusing on lowering our maintenance cost so that the
transition to the new API can happen more naturally.

I think SDK support is critical for the success of v3 long term.  I
expect most people are using the APIs through one of the major SDKs, so
v3 won't take off until that happens.  I think our top priority in Nova
to help ensure this happens is to provide top notch documentation on the
v3 API, as well as all of the differences between v2 and v3.
