I read the below post last week before I left for a small vacation, and
I really hoped it would raise some discussion. I agree with Bas that
those are very important issues for all people who need and apprechiate
WP 2.0.x as a "stable" distribution. (For example, I use only 2.0.x for
myself and for customer projects, as I couldn't guarantee consistency
accross upgrades with the later series.)

Best regards,
