The problem there is Unicode support, which has changed quite a bit
since that time -- the default encoding, if nothing else.  1.6 will
probably need to have Unicode disabled, or have support that's
incompatible with 2.0, or someone will have to backport the current
code to 1.6. (Better you guys than me, though...)
