The "roadmap for CMF 2.0",
calls for an alpha release in the very near term (before the end of the
year), with a beta to follow after a suitable stabilization period.

I would expect third-party products to lag a bit in synchronizing,
although many of them have leadership involved in this effort (Plone and
CPS, notably).

CMFQuickInstaller will likely shrink, as much of its machinery should be
doable with profiles.  Any remaining setup work should either migrate to
profile-based setup, or at least cooperate with the setup tool, I think.
The stock CMF setup already supports adding structure;  scripts are not
normally added in that way, but could be supported.

Your subclass shouldn't be much affected, as the current CMFSite class
does very little (it stubs out a couple of methods to keep the catalog
happy, mostly).
