Well I don't have a problem too. The only things that I wanted to
suggest when I've entered this thread was:
- Don't use different names for different gnupg branches.
- Set up some place (perhaps in the FAQ and even in the download area)
where you just say all that, namely: New features will probably go to
2.x, both will have the same security support, for the places where both
provide the same stuff (openPGP) both provide exactly the same
features... etc.

Best wishes,
