No, there were too many other changes required in other packages to 
support it, particularly the kernel package, most of the C library, and 
the addition of the fileio package.

I am fairly confident that irrespective of your groups and dependencies on 
eCos 1.3.1, it would take far longer to try and backport to 1.3.1 than 
just move to 2.0.
