Yes.  That is why we call it 2.0.  The intention is a complete redesign.
I also see no reason to support every barely-Unix system under the sun,
since the users of those systems can keep using 1.2.

BTW, I would appreciate it if the 2.0 source repository is made a
separate module under cvs instead of using a branch.  It is hard enough
to trace changes already and we have no desire to merge the branches later.
