I'd really suggest that it would be better to do the 2.0.1 work on
a branch; it's just a whole lot simpler if you don't have to merge
the "development" branch onto HEAD at some point, and create
a new -2-0 branch.
If vbs/jhbuild are updated appropriately, it shouldn't be hard
to keep it easy to work on 2.0.x bug fixing.
