As Sebb has shown there are compatibility breaks.  The real issue here is that it has been
far too long since a VFS release has been done. 

I'm not sure why the version was bumped from 1.1 to 2.0, but it happened in March 2008, at
least 8 months before I started working on the code.  That change was 16 months after the
prior release.

Is the goal to never do a release?
