  By and large, the configurations are compatible.  You could *almost*
take a configuration from 0.9.3, and use it in 2.1.6.  They're that close.

  Many of the configuration items have move (log_foo=bar to log{
foo=bar} ), but the old syntax is still accepted.

  That being said, it's always worth reading the configs in 2.x, and
*migrating* the configuration.  This means making it work the new way,
rather than simply copying the old way.  It's not hard, and it won't
take a long time.

  Sure... write one, and we'll add it in.
