Hm, no I think that we then have the same situation as now. The HEAD and
the 2.0 branch differ in some points. Sooner or later we have to decide
what of the new functions in the HEAD should be in the next release
of Cocoon.
So I think we should move everything which is additional to the 2.0 branch
in the scratchpad area. There might be exceptions for this rule.
We can then directly make a 2.0.1 version from the HEAD and afterwards
move that parts from the scratchpad area back to the src which are
finished.

If we first would do a 2.0.1 from the 2.0 branch, we still need to move
some parts of the HEAD in the scratchpad area.

I feel that making a 2.0.1 from a "cleanup" HEAD is a little bit less work.
