If we simply leave 2.0 as no-features / critical bugfixes / security
bugfixes / any other nice patches someone wants to craft and get
votes for - that would be sufficient.

Remember Jim's comments - many users will be 'stuck' on 2.0 for
some time into the future while their vendors are preparing their
2.2 builds of add-in modules.
