+1.  The differences between SAF1 and SAF2 are comparable to, for 
example, the differences between Maven1 and Maven2, or Tomcat3, 
Tomcat4, and Tomcat5, or Cocoon1 and Cocoon2, etc etc etc.  I had 
always figured we'd make the same kinds of distinctions on our site 
that those projects have.

Are there really people out there who have things they want to 
contribute to Struts 1.3, but they just aren't because of some 
uncertainty about the future?  I don't understand this (or maybe I 
don't believe it), but if it's true, please don't be shy.  Step up 
and do what you want to do, discuss it on dev, add issues to the 
tracker, etc.
