Thanks for the feedback.  The roadmap Wiki page definitely needs to be 
updated.  I will do that following discussion here.  I agree with 
combining the 2.0 and 3.0 tracks, but we need to agree first on what, if 
any, behavior changes we implement as part of the next major release.  I 
would also like us to continue supporting the 1.x branch for backward 
compatibility and pre-JDK 1.5 environments.

At this point, other than addressing POOL-131,  I am not yet convinced 
that we should implement any behavior changes beyond those that were 
implemented in pool 1.4.   That is, of course, just my opinion and I am 
open to suggestions on contract changes for 2.0.  Does anyone have 
specific suggestions for API improvement or comments on the Wiki page?
