Well, the answer to this question is not easy. Transition between 1.3 to 2.0
is assiciated with the changes of the c library, all the packages had to be
recompiled with new library. And though we have support for running old
binaries, huge packages like X could break.
You would be much better off downloading new X packages from ftp.debian.org

The same thing as before, not recommended, but some of them will run with no
problems whatsoever.
