A little bit out of context maybe but one thing on deprecation I really
do not like in e.g. java classes is that the method which is deprecated
does not contain a hint to the new method to use.

Right now cocoon-2.2 is kind of doing this ATM. For someone that used
2.1 before and is now diving into 2.2, things like how to write a
component that is based on 100% spring and not Avalon are deprecation
with no hints.

Deprecation with no substitutes will cause a lot of confusion.

just my 2 cents
