It'd be up to the operators, but there is always the option of simply
editing the paste.ini file so /v2 is again the produced by the old v2

My main concern about v2 / v2.1 compatibility in practicce (rather than
just passing the same tempest and uniteststs which does work) is lack
of feedback. Probably don't exepct positive feedback in many cases but
we're not really getting negative feedback much either. I really would
appreciate people actually trying it more real world apps so we get a
better idea of the compatibility in areas of the code that don't have
good tempest coverage or have unitests which are incomplete.
