The jump from Postfix 1.2 to 2.0 was pretty significant.  The jump from 
2.0 to 2.1 is IMO a no-brainer.  Personally, I don't think we need to 
retain either the postfix 1 or the postfix 2.0 ports, but others may 
disagree.  I think if nobody volunteers to maintain it, then there is 
no *real* need to keep it around, since it is not worth anyone's time 
stand up and say "I need this. I'll be resonsible for it."
