I've got both 1.3.x & 2.0.x servers running - there is no noticable
difference for a fairly normal, low-to-medium-volume web site.

I transfered my main home-site with no problems at all.
We transfered the "company's" main site, again, no real problems (we had
to spin-off another server for some stuff we'd got from a third-party,
but we'd installed the proxying stuff, so *I* think we came out ahead :)

There are a couple of issues surrounding the build process, but they can
be understood very easily.

Basically, standard (x)html & cgi will not care.

Mod_perl (and it's derivatives) require more work.
