In my centos servers with the sourceforge RPMs, it is logged in

The RPMs are available on sourceforge (a link exists from the
downloads section on the main home page); I have
used even 2.13 without problems.

I am not sure if there will be compatibility issues if you want to
jump back to epel for Varnish at some point (when 2.1 is available

There is also a bug with the DAEMON options startup script from these
RPMs.  You will want to change the single quotes in
/etc/init.d/varnish with double quotes for the DAEMON_OPT line (as
epel does).
