I like the idea of a compatibility layer -- but I strongly believe we
need to keep the ^idn2_.* namespace in the shared library, everything
else will cause serious confusion in distributions when apps will be
linked to both libraries.  Mapping idn_* into idn2_* calls should be
done through a header file, so which symbol is needed is decided at
compilation time.

I must admit I haven't looked at what got pulled into git later on,
still catching up on emails...
