I think too much work has gone into the forms system for it to not be available in 2.0. That said, I should think 2.0 will be amenable to using other forms frameworks - it just won't be as well integrated with the ORM.
I think if you have a personal project to start now, you should use 1.4 and upgrade to 2.0 in a year if there is a compelling reason to do so. There is limited benefit to using 2.0 immediately, and the major drawbacks are that the ORM and the Forms systems are not integrated yet.
