I'm using my vdr binaries on several machines and portable
installations, most of them running debian lenny, means 2.6.26 by
default, and no S2API. Since I have no hardware that has any advantage
using S2API, and some of the machines don't even have DVB hardware at
all, I'll keep up the compatibility for now.

After the release of etch, and after all systems are up to date again,
I'll probably drop the patch finally. But until then, there's a good
chance for even more updates: I guess I'll need runtime switching
between DVBV3API and S2API before etch is final.
