[Qgis-developer] Removing old labelling

Hi all

It would be good to have the choice between new and old engine, similar 
as in the symbology tab, with the new one set as default (as many people 
on the list suggest). With 2.0, the old engine could be removed. Maybe 
some of the missing features will be there then. And if not, there is 
still the possibility to consider some sort of old labelling 
compatibility mode (one candidate position at the centerpoint of a feature).
