So far, the Jaxen project has decided that XPath 2.0 is probably
less than useful to us.  Haven't had any users asking about it
either.  Seems like most folks are happy with 1.0 (or at least
are not too unhappy with it).  2.0 just seems to lose much of
the simplicity and -value- that XPath 1.0 has for many developers.
