That sounds rather bizarre to me ...I will investigate a bit

My initial idea was to have one codebase with a detached release cycle
for the the compiler modules. So we would have a 3.1 and a 3.2 branch
of the plugin.

But you are right testing-wise it would be not that perfect . On the

Problem is that a 3.1 and a 3.2 compiler most likely won't work in the
same classpath.
