Since my package contains knitr-compiled vignettes, I need to restrict it to 3.0.0 going forward. I'd like to submit a final version for 2.x that will not be updated but compiles the vignettes in the old manner; and a version for 3.x. My thought is that they will have the same version number, with the only difference being how the vignette is compiled and the DESCRIPTION files.

The one for R >= 3.0.0 should have a larger version number and goes into 
a separate part of the repository (and moved to the main part once 
R-3.0.0 is released), the other one should have a dependency on R < 3.0.0.
