It might make sense to keep it around for some time, since Wietse did
release 2.0.20 when he released 2.1.0. But let postfix be the 2.1.0
version, and stick the 2.0 version in a postfix20 port.

Speaking of postfix-2.1. I know of a free software company that used 2.1
on their main MX for +6 weeks now. It's been a very good experience,
with several improvements over 2.0.x
