This is hopefully what we all wanted. Yes. Perfect.

Thanks a lot. I've only tested building HEAD for now, but the layout seems to
be correct. I'll poke around the history the next days. And try to get my
patches applying again.

For really ancient version we should have the old repository in read-only mode
somewhere. This is sufficient at least for me.

The removal of "v2" requires some patching. I've attached to necessary patch
to bootstrap.{sh,bat}. Can this be applied automatically right after the
conversion so that the scripts are working on checkout? Otherwise the
patch(es) should be added to the wiki page.
