Sure, but the opportunity of a smooth transition has been lost. Deprecation
w/ an overlapping strategy (allowing both to operate) so folks can make the
transition semi-transparently & not impose Jar-Hell on users/users
environments, now that is a beautiful thing.

BTW: This isn't just C-L.
BTW: I also wish folks had updated long ago, we'd have had a much smaller
transition, be having discovered this sooner.
