I'm +1 to the changes, except that the non-static stuff should not be 
marked as deprecated in the 1.6 branch.

My external tasks use this version and I'm getting deprecation warnings 
that I know to ignore (and cannot act on without sacrificing 1.6.x 
compatibility). Adding the same warning to the 1.6 branch increases the 
risk that people see the warning and change their tasks to not work on 
the 1.6.2 and earlier releases.
