Just for the records: Rhino hasn't been updated in 2.1.X yet. As it introduces 
some backwards incompatibilites we should support both interpreters (the old and 
the new one) at the same time.

This requires renaming of all packages in our forked rhino version and duplicate 
  the interpreter and FOM code.
Additionally we have to look into the FOM implementation because some methods 
don't wrap objects properly so that you get warnings when you use the new 
version e.g. when context.getAttribute([name]) is called. See for more 
details. Of course, this has to be done in trunk too.

Anyway, as we agreed that 2.2 should come soon, I don't think it's worth doing 
the refactoring. And if somebody really want's to use the new rhino version too, 
he can simply exchange the libraries manually. The only drawback is that this is 
an "all or nothing" decision and some warnings might pop up in the console.
