They will be using the web site for reference, though. There is a
separate copy of the 1.2 docs there for that reason, and I expect us
to do the same for 1.3 in due course. Therefore I think it is OK to
remove references to pre-2.0 versions from the 2.0 docs.

However I don't think it is possible to avoid doing this for 2.0.1,
2.0.2 etc., at least not without maintining separate docs for release
tarballs and for the web site.
