Will we be able to retrofit 2.01 components into 2.1?

    So the buzzy-buzz around here & elsewhere is that the 2.1 update for the Droid is coming very soon. Some of us have already tasted a few goodies, like the home screen, docking screen and gallery. The gallery I like, but the home screen and docking screen I don't. There's always work arounds in the way of apps; I use Home++ for example. But what if I don't like some of the things that 2.1 brings but I want all of the capability it brings? Will folks be pulling components from the ("old") 2.01 to use in place of them on 2.1?
    So as an example, could I run 2.1 with the old 2.01 home screen or docking station, etc?

    Also, will all the apps designed for 2.01 work with 2.1, or could there be problems?

    Thanks Folks!

    I'm guessing you could backup your rom and flash back to old versions. Wouldn't know how, but I imagine it's possible with a rooted phone.
