Well, that partly depends on whether the 2.0 config file ends up
completely different or not. :) Assuming not...

If we were to make those two directives backward compatible, I'd alias
them to "Include" instead (with a warning in the logs), so they'd at
least work.

But, unless the server is also running in the same process model
(prefork), we'd probably want to force the admin to hack up the config
files anyway.
