No, it should be open for 2.1.  Forward means (as the subject says)
from 2.0 to 2.1.  (This is also known as "backward" compatibility.)

Of course, the subject could be wrong as written.

The other way, 2.1 => 2.0 would be "reverse" compatibility.  I have no
interest in retrofitting old versions to read newer versions.

Indeed, 2.1 doesn't save map.l lines, so 2.0 will exit with error.

We should be able to read old savegames, but not those that are
completely incompatible.  AFAIK, the current cutoff is 1.14.x.
