I actually have been working this week to update to 2.0.4 (latest
upstream). We started with a plain update to 1.9 with Andreas tree in
but I'm already having something that is using 2.0.4. It still doesn't
build fully, though, but configure step passes. I modernized most of our
buildtools/wafsamba/ as part of it.

It will take me a bit more time after FOSDEM to complete this work so
I'd prefer not to merge 1.9 patches meanwhile.
