I am very familiar with the layout of PostGIS, and somewhat with PostgreSQL
(I say somewhat because it is a truly deep piece of work..)
there were not "unresolved file  system conflicts between the two 
proposed versions"
however, I am not a lawyer, linux distribution architect, nor enemy 

I am not eager to scrap over technicalities, so I bring this up now
better to hash it out well before any deadlines

there are a few goodies in PostGIS 2.0 that a lot of people will 
benefit from seeing
once again, I suspect I will advocate for PostGIS 2.0 to be included
I suspect PostGIS will be finished before the deadlines, but not much before
I suspect that the packaging will not be ready in Ubuntu GIS
