I think its a good case for leaving it in 2.1 and indefinitely. Like I
said before, even if we put a giant glaring message saying "We now
recommend the use of the XML export." Or, although this would never
happen, we could remove it from future versions and supply a seperate
upgrade package which will always include the latest version of the
plugin for just this purpose.
