And that has worked so well in Java.... hehe.  Its been deprecated for 
awhile.  The documentation has said this.  Officially
Sun considers deprecated to mean that in future releases it may go away. 
 They're just lazy about doing it.  This results in
some things that work intermittantly which is the worst kind of bug.

One reason is that its a maintenance drag, cocoon is undergoing some 
resonable re-engineering under the covers, along with Avalon.  Updating 
this deprecated class is a drag.

As an alternative, perhaps we could move it off into something like the 
scratchpad like a "oldstuff" or "compatibility-layer" kinda deal so that 
it isn't included by default.  

Thoughts?
