The only reasons I could think of were "historical", "I like even more 
than odd
numbers" or sentimental such as "I fell in love while coding on the 
fftw2" :-)

Now seriously, I think the only reason we decided to keep the fftw2 was 
that at that
point the fftw3 was not completely supported in all distros but I think 
that is a
thing of the past.
