Actually, I'm not sure what the effective differences are between 2.1 and
2.0.  I believe the MetaCard ownership transition falls in sometime around
the version change (I could be wrong), and since MC was always a small step
ahead of RR, I figured it was safer to recommend use of RR 2.1

As far as supporting 1.1 goes, it might be possible, but for something that
technically should *not* be run within the development environment (the
intended delivery of our stack is via our downloadable player), it's not
really worth it to me to go to this trouble for a freebie stack.  I don't
want this to come across as callous -- we already have several demo stacks
that we have available on our site free of charge, and will often post
little tidbits to the list now and then.  So if you miss out on this one,
don't worry there will be others to come.  But I would strongly encourage
use of 2.x since I believe the feature set is better than 1.x

If you have further questions/problems with our stacks, please feel free to
contact me directly -- I'll try to help where I can.
