I just have a small fear about this. If we switch to the refactored 
JXTG in 2.2, we will have three branches to work on:

- fixing bugs in the old JXTG in 2.1, even though no new features are 
added
- fixing bugs in the refactored JXTG in 2.2 and maybe adding new 
features, since 2.2 is going to stay around for a long time.
- developing the new TemplateGenerator.

As long as the refactored JXTG is backward compatible, what's stopping 
us from dropping the old one completely?
