We are not yet committed to the 2.0 repository.  Moving apachen to -1.3 is
a good thing and should have been done before apachen was made.

I really do think that keeping the tree for 2.0 is a good idea.  There is
a lot of code in there that is worthwhile.  Change historys are very
useful.  2.0 will not be a complete rewrite of anything except perhaps
large parts of the core and, of course, modules as people decide they want
to.  Unless someone can show me the programmers hiding around...

While it is true that we can accomplish 10x more coding on 2.0 in a month
than we have on 1.1-1.3, there are limits.
