That is my understanding re: 5695, though 1.2.7 doesn't actually exist due
to being withdrawn as a result of a regression. Anything marked 1.2.7 is
effectively 1.2.8.

Per iamaleksey (#cassandra@freenode), the upgrade process to 2.0 creates
new schema, which is capable of being pulled by any 1.2 node in the same
cluster. So the two previously mentioned bugs preclude online ("rolling
restart") upgrade without first upgrading to 1.2.x >=1.2.9.

There are also third and fourth (related) issues, which aleksey just
confirmed are the *real* reason you *must* pass through 1.2.x >= 1.2.9, as
they preclude offline upgrade with the entire cluster down. You *must*
start your node on >= 1.2.9 < = 2.0.x, because the fixes occur at startup
