It seems there are some big differences between 2.0 and later series.
Notably, 2.0 still uses the old pubring.gpg and secring.gpg keyrings and
supports PGP-2 keys. But 2.0 uses the newer multi-process architecture
compared to 1.4.

So, there could be people still wanting to use 2.0 for a while. I think
we should remove it completely soonish.

I pushed as 806e891e85aff27ea87c4e60930d8c4ed7d5091f.
