delete knot2

After dns/knot2-lib is deleted the port dns/knot2 can also be removed.

Is there any possibility that some knot2 config can not run under knot3 ?

Should knot2 be kept at least for a while (mabye with DEPRECATED and EXPIRE) ?

From my own experience I saw an obsolete option just generate a non-blocking warning at validation at startup.

The page https://www.knot-dns.cz/docs/3.0/html/migration.html#upgrade-2-9-x-to-3-0-x states: "Knot DNS version 3.0.x is functionally compatible with 2.9.x.".

So I don't think "cooling down" with DEPRECATED or EXPIRE is needed, but I wouldn't mind having that for a while. But the software will be unmaintained.

What would be nice however, would be something like in Perl5, when you update say perl5-5.26 you automatically get perl5-5.32, but I don't know how and where that's managed.
