The S3 interface in awsapi ?

 The problem that Edison dealt with in swift support is very real.  I'm not trying to make
an excuse for making a unilateral decision to drop support without getting community feedback
first.  That is wrong and I'm glad it's being resolved.  However, without automated testing
backing functionality, we can have different set of these problems pop up every release. 
Should we start with only functionalities tested in automated testing to be the supported
feature set and add features back in as more testing is added back in?

 Or else we can face the same problem with those features too.
