Sure, you could do that route or branch trunk for version 2 and do development
on version 3 in trunk. It's a style issue, but trunk would see more of your
active development. If version 2 is only getting minor changes, then I would
make version 2 a branch.

Also, think when you have version 4. Most likely you wouldn't want to branch 4
from 3's branch, so basically, keep the newest version on trunk.
