I didn't say 2.1 is crap, I said it breaks savegames, and is lacking other
features.  I see there was a slight miswording though--I will redo it, and
start poll over.

However, I didn't state a 'release', I said 2.1 beta 5 or 2.2 beta 1.
Either way, we are going to have another beta, it just depends on which
version we do the beta from.

I have been playing 2.2 (trunk+ FMVpatch) SP game, and as I encounter
bugs/issues, that is what I work on.
For 2.1 (branch), IMO, it is *not* worth even playing the SP game.
 You can't even compare them, the difference the FMVs bring is simply huge.

That is mainly why I do not think 2.1 is worth it to continue to work on/be

On the MP front, since 2.2 & 2.1 are pretty much the same codewise, there is
no real difference here.

And this is that miswording.
