No, it'd still be the case - an update isn't sufficient.  I'd have to 
get a brand-new checkout of httpd because my local working copy would 
refer to httpd-2.0.  At best, I might be able to run a script to 
tweak my CVS directories.

I'd prefer that we start 2.1 on a new repository that doesn't have 
"2.0" in the name.  Yes, that means losing history of 2.0 in that 
repository.  So, be it.  It's not all that important, and we've done 
this at every branch point before.  Some of the operations take too 
long as it is because of the large history of some files.

Regardless, whatever we do must be planned and agreed to ahead of 
time.  -- justin
