I think this happens by itself - slowly but surely I find that for new
sites; or olds sites you are revisting, we are getting to that point where
it is cheaper to migrate to 2.0 than to keep 1.3 patched up with little
hacks to do MPM like things, special auths, clever proxy/pipelines and
what not - which is in 2.0 in some for by default. Just give it another
one or two years and you simply take a 2.x naturally.

Why push - gravity eventually wins.
