i concur.

most of those of us who hang out on the exim-users list refuse to try to
answer exim 3 questions because we all switched to exim 4 more than
2 years ago and none of us really remember exim 3 that well anymore.

the only conceivable reason for keeping exim 3 around is because
someone doesn't want to deal with the incompatible changes to the
configuration file. i think that those people need to be encouraged to
move on, it's well past time they dealt with it.
