postfix1 - leave as it is.
postfix - should always point to what Wietse calls the "Official release"
version. Currently, that is 2.1 Patchlevel 0.
postfix20 - can point to the last official patchlevel release of postfix
2.0.x if enough people need it.
postfix-current - should point to what Wietse calls an "Experimental
release" version. Currently the 2.2 codebase.
