  Some things have changed.  Even 2.2.0 will NOT be 100% compatible with
2.1.12.  e.g. the "passwd" file has a configuration entry *forbidden*.
It used to be marked "do not use".  People used it.  And then complained
that things went wrong.  So... marking it forbidden solves that problem.

  I don't recall the details now, but 3.0 is *not* a drop-in replacement
for 2.x.  As I tried to say, some old / broken behavior in 2.0 is not
just deprecated, it's *gone*.  The new way is better.

  The migration shouldn't be difficult, but it will be a migration.  The
alternative would be to keep config file compatibility with 0.x, which I
can't afford to do.
