Not worth for the few months. We could have done that for over a year
and also a switch to 3.4 was possible. We stayed with 3.0 for good

The plan will be to switch to 3.10 in testing when 3.11 will be out for
the stock kernel. We can delay this until the last 3.0 release or be
pretty quick when 3.11 is just released.

I notice 3.0 to be slow in boot and shutdown with systemd even with a
slow hdd as boot drive, much more with a ssd. I suggest to put 3.10 LTS
as early as possible into testing maybe parallel to 3.10 stock kernel
in a few weeks. I'd be happy to test it.
