 We discussed this issue backwards and forwards and it would be good to 
 make some progress here. There is really not a lot missing in the new 
 labeling and I don't agree with Paolo that the new labeling is slower 
 than the old labeling. It may have different settings and thus people 
 are comparing apples with oranges.

 It would be good to integrate the labeling 2.0 in the layers dialogue 
 and make it the default.

 If someone is missing a feature in labeling 2.0 that is present in 
 labeling 1.0 he/she should either work on it or pay someone to work on 
 it. It is not good blocking labeling 2.0 just because some minor aspect 
 is missing.

 What are the real issues/problems with labeling 2.0?
