IMO, 3.x was really fast compared to 4.x. It also packed a lot of 
functionality into a small package.

There is probably still a lot of utility in it, could be useful in an 
embedded or low resource scenario. It would probably be nice if someone 
maintained it.

That said, it did have a lot of problems, not the least being that it 
was not very modular and hence difficult to extend. That's why Olivier 
decided to start again from scratch with 4.x
