We'll make security fixes if they come up, of course. We still have a
1.5 branch in our SVN repository,

Of course, that's not the real issue. No-one should prefer 1.5 to 2.0.
If you have issues, list them and we'll fix them. I guess if we can't
persuade you that 2.0 is better, that's cool, but the whole point of
continuing development is to make something better. Theoretically, 2.0
is a few months worth of improvements to 1.5.2. (Naturally, it's not
your fault if you prefer 1.5.2, that's not what I'm implying, I'm
saying it's probably our fault)
