Yes, it will work with a 2.x data store. However, I haven't tested
whether the script itself will run with a BackupPC 2.x installation.
Some of the library modules were rearranged for 3.x, but a quick
inspection. You could try copying the script from 3.x, edit the
use lib "/usr/local/BackupPC/lib";
to match your installation and try it out.
