There's been moderately serious discussion about dropping v2 support
altogether, so I sure hope there isn't anything in the wild that still
depends on it.
Also, moving from v2 to v3 per se just isn't very hard, if you aren't
worried about making use of new-in-v3 protocol features. I wonder whether
Konstantin is confusing v2 vs v3 with use of simple vs. extended query
protocol within v3.
