The problem is that kronolith2 depends on version 3 of the horde
framework (rather than version 2), that the two versions of horde
cannot meaningfully cooperate and there are still some horde2
applications that have not been ported to horde3. Basically, upstream
has abandoned horde2 before they ported all their OWN code to horde3.

So dropping horde2 is a regression, which explains why we haven't done
it yet. But I'm toying with the idea, as we cannot meaningfully
support it anyway. Ola, your opinion?
