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."
