My line of thinking is that the majority of the time, we're creating a 
ClientConfiguration by one of:

* ClientConfiguration#loadDefault()
* new ClientConfiguration(String)
* new ClientConfiguration(File)

Granted, we also inherit/expose a few other things (notably extending 
CompositeConfiguration and throwing ConfigurationException). I would be 
comfortable with dropping those w/o deprecation. I have not seen 
evidence from anyone that they are widely in use by folks (although I've 
not explicitly asked, either).
