any reason you cannot just leave a 2.0 installation in place,
and use it for the old code?

if you insist, you can patch your site.py or sitecustomize.py
file to switch off warnings, using something like:

    import warnings

also see section 5 of:


and the library reference (the "warnings" module).

Cheers /F
