With gocql we currently run out integration test suite on Travis
against 1.2.18 and 2.0.9 (*), but in each case, we install the server
from a clean slate. Theoretically we could do a migration, but the
clean slate makes things easier for us. One could argue however that
verifying server migration is beyond the scope of the integration test
suite for a client driver.

(*) We've looked at including 2.1rc3, but there is a acknowledged
server side bug that causes one of our tests to fail, so we do not
have mainline coverage for 2.1-rcx yet.
