I was a bit unsure that such a reorganization would not affect released
classes, mainly because I had forgotten what was in the 2.0 release and
what has been added since then.  To help figure that out, I went through
all the classes and added @since tags for all the released classes.  I
didn't have enough minutes this evening to figure out what the
compability impact really would be though.

Btw, no apologies needed for the long email.  You've expressed a lot of
great ideas; ones which I hope we will be able to implement so users
will have an easier time using the code that we provide.
