If we agree on 3.0 and 3.3 going away, then so should 3.5,
there's no point in keeping it. I'm more inclined not to keep 3.5.

I don't like this approach. In my opinion, whenever it may be
indifferent to user, we should just provide latest stable release.
Users that need specific branch can utilize another package nearby.

Also Samba is neither Python nor Ruby, it doesn't have that heavy impact
on other packages.
