[pycrypto] PyCrypto release plans

Here's a quick overview of my plans for future PyCrypto releases:

- The current source tree will become the 2.1.x branch.

- After 2.1.0 is released, if there is sufficient demand, I will 
   backport some of the changes and release 2.0.2.  This will fix stuff 
   like the "length mod 64 == 55" bug in the SHA256 module.

- The 3.x branch will be designed to work with Python 3.x, and will 
   probably drop backward-compatibility for some deprecated APIs.

- PyCrypto 2.x will continue to target Python 2.x until Python 3 
   catches on.

I have no timeline for this yet; The next release will happen When It's 
Ready (TM), but hopefully no more than two Debian-stable releases will 
happen in the meantime. ;-)
