The option 3 shows the entire diff when we submit a PR, which was
already one of the big issue of the __unported__ folder.
Having the diff showing what has been migrated is really necessary for
reviewers IMO. Your workaround to do the porting work in a second
commit might work for small addons, but bigger addons need more than 2
commits and we can't review commit per commit.

Handling the cluttering of uninstallable addons in a repository is a
one-off work, doing the migration and reviewing work is the thing on
which most people will pass most of the time, so this is what we
should make easy and I really think 2. is better for that.
