My understanding from Scott is that while 2.0 isn't something he's still
supporting, people using it is not a disaster, and while people should run
2.1 instead, 2.0 isn't completely broken or anything.

Certainly if he feels like no one should run 2.0, I'm happy to ask for it
to be pulled from testing.
