2.1 is a branch - so innovation shouldn't really happen there. Trunk I
don't understand, and is too unstable (not a negative, just a fact[1])
for me to find time to understand it. So I don't see quite what I could
work on. And I suspect the case is the same for others too.


[1] Some people have time and resources to give to working with that
level of instability. Others need something relatively stable to work on
incrementally within their work. I see no problem with either approach,
I just want us to bring the latter back into play in our community.
