Frank expressed the heart of my email. I am not only going to support s1 
in terms of bug fixes, but major new features. Now that's okay, right? 
No one has ever told me s1 is off-limits for new development, and so 
that's why I do not consider it "legacy" and why having a "compat" 
package might make things "uncompat"ible if it gets out of date.

I have no problem hearing how s1 does things worse than s2 :-) The facts 
and truth are in the codebase already; so having a person say it doesn't 
hurt anything. I certainly don't want the umbrella label framework 
either (I am heavily against it), but if I require "3 souls" (Ted's 
email) I hope they stick around so I can do more releases!

My point is that inside of providing a "compat" package, which I see as 
an actual stumbling block, we advocate people running the s1 action 
servlet alongside s2.
