criminals can do tomorrow, unless we protect against them.

Add version 3, which is the first version marked as RELEASED.

The significant changes since the previous DRAFT 2 are:

 * Fix the incorrect reference to a REQUIRES clause in RFC4253.
 * Fix the numbering of Debian releases when quoting OpenSSH versions,
   and add codenames to aid disambiguation.
 * Make clear that our recommendations are appropriate for today, but
   should change over time as the world changes.
 * Suggest that low-power devices should perhaps support EC DH and
   ciphers exclusively because of their reduced computational
 * Elaborate that the currently understood safe set size for a DH group
   is 2048 bits, and that our recommendation for >= 4096 is stronger
   than strictly required.
