Then how do we explain new users why they're supposed to install 0.96  
instead of 3.0.x.?

We should keep supporting CDBI as a model since it's still quite  
popular, but we can't recommend it for production,
so it has no place on the welcome screen, which is meant to be a  
quickstart guide listing some best practices.

Wouldn't it better to teach new users how end actions and the view  
forward works, instead of hiding the details?
