I don't mean to disappoint, but I don't think it will be possible to fall 
back without creating modifications on both sides (both renogotiation of 
connection on the server side and client side, because the protocols are 
inherently different).

For what it's worth, I tend to simply set "Protocol 1,2" in my .ssh/config 
and for the default case, it works fine (just like it used to).  I don't 
want to make that policy decision, though, because we will be better off 
when everyone moves to the protocol version 2, so it's reasonable for the 
default to make things "difficult" to encourage the switch.  I support the 
OpenSSH developers' plan here.
