This has been backed out of SVN for now.

(from the JIRA:)

Whys:
- Make VFS more attractive for new user/developers, new committers in the
21st century. No one can force anyone to upgrade to the next version.
- Keep VFS relevant. The older versions are still there for volunteers to
patch.
- Open the door for newer versions of jars that required Java 6, like
commons-io 2.3.
