We are using 3.0.x!
Our project is still  in development phase but close to production.
We took the decision to go for ZMQ 3 because we need the nice pub/sub 
subscription forwarding feature.
We knew that 3 was categorized as unstable but we understood unstable as 
not reliable because new piece of software.
We did take it as unstable because features will still be added/removed!

It is our way to participate in open source development to take 
"unstable" release, to use it  and to report any bug found to developers 
in order to stabilize
the product.

Therefore my vote is rather option 3 (if possible)
But it is not that dramatic if option 2 is selected but please, once it 
is decided, stay with the decision!
