You mean 2.0.5 didn't complain about the directive like 2.1 does.  I doubt
it had any meaning.  Following symlinks doesn't make sense in terms of web
servers;  there just aren't any symlinks to follow.  They're a local (unix)
file system concept.

My guess (without looking at any of the code, or having used 2.0.5) is that
2.1 is just more strict in parsing the config file, and which directives it
allows based on the indexing method you're using.
