i agree also. i wasnt saying that 2.1.x should be put in experimental,
but simply that there is nothing wrong with using experimental, as i
think that is how sven feels. i was simply trying to point out that
there is nothing wrong with using experimental.

when and _if_ the time comes to upload 2.1.x, i think it should be done
in experimental, not in a staging area that a developer would have to
maintain. but that time is not now, as we still have 2.0 issues to work
