I filed a bug upstream (https://github.com/dgrijalva/jwt-go/issues/176)
and the upstream author said he plans to keep fixing bugs for 2.x, so
I'd say that having a different package makes sense.

Two things would need to happen, though: the new package will have to
use a different import path, and dependencies will have to be patched to
use it. Upstream mentioned gopkg.in, so maybe he will switch to that at
some point, but for now, we will have to do it the hackish way.

The same should probably be done to the v2 package too.

Also, we should probably discuss with the team the version naming
scheme, since it is possible this will happen more often in the future.
What do you folks think? golang-fooN, golang-foo-vN?
