Then I say both serve specific purposes... ie ´classic wget´ is more
easily portable (win32, os2, you-name-it), while next-gen wget would
be unix-linux oriented.

Why not just bump the version and let´s keep ´classic´ wget and ´wget
2.0´ in parallel?.
If ´classic´ wget rots someone else will come along and continue
enhancing it to support new protocols etc (spdy anyone?) because he
needs a current tool for his non-unix based OS...
