	This seems reasonable, but raises the likelihood that the 1.3 
FAQ will be used purely for 2.0 by some (eventually, most?) people.

	Can we add something to the (1.3) FAQ identifying status of 
individual issues in 2.0? Ideally, I'd like to have [1.3 only] or 
[fixed in 2.0] in the TOC and inline titles, to make scanning through 
it easier for 2.0 users, but this probably shouldn't appear until 2.0 
is released (at least at 'beta'/external level). This might also make 
it easier to build a new 2.0 FAQ, or might become irrelevant if the 
rest of the 2.0 docs are much better.
