After some research it's true that the 3.0 API would be great as it provide
interesting new features, like copy/paste and better keyboard support, but
it's not really widely use (at least for now) and the same goes for 2.3.3 so
wouldn't it be better to use 2.2.x instead so more people could use it ?
