Maybe. There are definitely some fixes I'd personally like to have in
the 2.0.x branch, because that's what I'm using in production right now.
I don't want to have to upgrade to Tools 2.1 (release date unknown) and
Velocity 2.0 (release date unknown) just to get those fixes.

Realistically, I can commit the changes to the 2.0.x line, build it
myself, and use it without a problem. I just figured that others might
be in my same position and like those fixes as well.
