that. I know of at least one big international research project that uses commons-math 1.2
and will switch to 2.0 when it will be published. They have already faced compatibility problems
recently (two days ago).
What were the problems?  I have been on the fence on the package name 
change as I - I guess incorrectly - have been assuming that the 
compatability breaks are not extensive and not likely to bite many users. 

Given that there *are* incompatibilities, I am +1 on the package renaming.
