Correct, but it means that 4.x does not need to be released for a very
long time (you are grafting 4 into 3 to allow developers time to
change). So the first option is equivalent to, for example, doing
4+legacy and then releasing 5 without the legacy layer.

But the more I think about it, a clean break and a legacy layer is
going to be the easier option to work with. The code in the CMS is so
old it's just not worth trying to fight with it.

Interesting you should say that. So George and I were just talking
about things in general today, and the suggestion came up to move the
Framework Team under the Joomla 4 Team (when that exists properly). I
think I do like that idea.

Just thinking out loud, if the Joomla 4 Team was made up of a
framework team, an application team (the actual CMS part with
extensions), a UI/UX team, a documentation team and a quality &
testing team, I think we'd be in a really good place to move forward.

It would be interesting to hear if other people thought about that
kind of concept.
