modules2 should theoretically be much more powerful because it works at a 
lower level... modules has problems when you do things like update -d because 
it only really runs as a layer on top of the standard checkout.

OTOH for 2.6 I ran into problems with it for the next test release.  I'll 
reinstate it later but may replace (or augment) it with something even more 
powerful (that's really only in the back of my mind at the moment - need to 
thrash the idea about a bit first (my post in -dev about it at some point).

It does work but some of the more complex scenarios break down due to the 
amount of translation required.  2.6 is much simpler (the virtual FS takes 
care of the hard bits) but then there are other problems with that :)  I 
really need to get down and get that to production quality...
