I think, you've got something wrong. As of the branch to 2.1, we've marked 2.0
stable and more or less freezed. That has nothing to do with being fair or
not. The development just happens in 2.1 and beyond. Big changes to 2.0 are
always dangerous with regard to stability. (therefore RTC policy).

Backporting all stuff from 2.1 to 2.0 doesn't do any good.
