Oh geez. Do we really have to go through this again.  You can run 
whatever you like on your PC.  And Linden Lab has every right to 
determine what software they will allow to connect to their SERVICE.  
And there's no indication and never has been that LL will block anything 
that's not 2.0.  Their are some text only clients on the TPV that 
connect legitimately now.  The Emerald team brought this on themselves.  
This kind of stuff has no business on a development list. Please take it
