[development] Some of core to contrib?

Looks like we could try to do this without changing HEAD development
at all - if Alex starts with OpenID and Aggregator 2.x branches in
contrib, then anyone who wants to could do the same for the other
optional core modules. Then if it works we could look at better
infrastructure around it.

And the idea here is not that we encourage everyone running Drupal
core to upgrade to the -2.x versions of these modules - it's that
they're available for those who need the extra features they provide.
So if they end up with a few hundred or couple of thousand users
instead of 80,000 (not that all core sites are running aggregator or
poll anyway), that's completely fine. Better than the < 1000 people
who install Drupal 7 before it gets to beta and rely on the testbot to
pretend to use these modules otherwise.
