You might be assuming you absolutely must upgrade to API 2.0 right now, but that’s not the case. We have designed it so that you have tremendous flexibility in terms of what and when and even if you move to API 2.0.
Brent Simmons did an excellent job explaining why developers shouldn’t provide ETAs.
