OpenJUMP has now support for PostGIS 2.0, but I am not sure it will be 
in the release (1.5.2) that is for use with the LiveDVD (OJ 1.6 is on RC).

Similar to gvSIG, it is not a dependency of the application, but rather 
that a user may want to test loading data from PostGIS into the desktop 
GIS. Hence, having a second PostGIS would be nice, but I agree: it is 
confusing to users too (How does he know there are two versions? and to 
which to connect?).
