Throwing away working and stable code is rarely a good idea. Certainly there is code in Oregano 3 that was also present in Oregano 2 and Oregano 1. There have been some major changes in the code that do push the product version up and usually makes it impractical to continue supporting the older versions.

After Oregano 1 the code was rewritten to be easily portable across multiple platforms and OSes, after Oregano 2 the layout engine and DOM support (amongst other things) were completly rewritten to provide support for CSS2 and DOM2 (this took well over a year, and another year to bug fix and optimise). Hopefully there won't be a need for any major code changes for quite some time (CSS3 and DOM 3 support should just be extensions to the current CSS2 and DOM2 support) and Oregano 3 can be kept uptodate for a long time.
