Can I achieve the same thing as "saint mode" on varnish 2.0.4? If not, when
will there be a release with this feature?

Specifically, we are looking to not store bad documents unless we have to,
iow, not replace a known good document ( status 200 or 404 ), with a bad
document ( status 503 ), if it would otherwise would be served from grace.

Saint Mode Change Set:

if (beresp.status == 500) {

 set beresp.saintmode = 20s;
