Well, I'll clean up the HEAD branch slowly but I don't have the time to
do it in the 2.0 branch as well. I'd suggest to move the head to
release quality and only patch the 2.0 branch for bugs. This way we can
get rid of the 2.0 branch sooner than later (which was always the
proposed way to go IIRC).
