I know. Sun is insane with their deprecation policies. The point of  
deprecation is to give people a warning that something's going away  
soon. Not to keep it forever.

Historically in Cayenne the deprecation timespan was between major  
releases. I.e. the promise is that if something is "deprecated since  
3.0", it won't be in 3.1. Anything more conservative than that would  
just result in an unbelievable code mess.

In fact I am in favor of shorter major release cycles in large part  
because we'll be able to evolve the framework faster (still giving  
users a proper warning of course).
