I had a conversation about this with the "other" Derrick.  The
consensus was that tools for a particular release are not intended
nor expected to work with older releases of OpenAFS.  Okay, there
is never any gratuituous breakage if it can be helped ... but since
there is no good way to determine if your fileserver supports 2b
or not, _and_ since 2b has been supported for what seems to be
forever in terms of OpenAFS, there was approximately zero sympthathy
for sites that don't like this default.
