I mostly want to switch between 2.x and 3.x, and several modules got renamed between these versions.  There are also new modules on each release (5 new ones in 3.3).

Even better would be to make it work -- while fixing the docs I often have to apply a patch on each version and then check that it works.  If that's not implemented, disabling it sounds OK.  By now I'm used to just change the URLs (I do the same even on, but it would be a nice addition.
These are just further improvements though, they don't necessarily prevent the current patch to be accepted.
