> The POP3 method setState() is public. However, the state should only be settable by library
methods, not by client code, otherwise the state checks won't work correctly.
> Changing the visibility would break binary compatibility.
> To maintain compatibility there could be a new method (package-private, which would give
test cases access) which is allowed to set the state. Also change the public method to either
do nothing or throw an UnsupportedOperationException.
> The getState() method can remain public.
