're-open the discussion' != 'remove the #if 0'

frankly, it is bad when we don't do frequent releases, and so we tell
users of new equipment that they have to build from git repo, but the
git repo uses a different API.

so- lets release current tree as 1.0.21 in one month. At the same
time, we finalize the 2.0 spec. If we keep it small, we can do a 2.0
release around Jan 1. I'm pretty busy, but if i can get some help we
can swing it.

i am sure sane 1.0.21 and sane 2.0.0 will have to live concurrently
for a little while, so we will have to keep that in mind.
