Well, it will let us eventually do this, but I don't believe we will be 
ready to drop support of 2.1 anytime soon.  As a matter of fact, Leszek 
provided a fix last week for what seems to me to be a pretty serious bug 
in flow and this alone should warrant a 2.1.8 release.

I doubt many will switch until 2.2 is stable - i.e we've had a few 
releases of it.  I would recommend that we continue doing maintenance on 
2.1 until at least a stable 2.2.0 is released and possibly a release or 
two later.  That doesn't mean that new features need to be backported to 
2.1 though.
