Github user joehni commented on the pull request:
    It does! Binary compatibility means, that you can take the new jar file and replace it
in an existing project without recompile the sources. This is what Apache Common promises
for its components. Therefore is is *not* possible to remove those methods, because existing
classes will call the methods with the single argument and will break badly if it is missing.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at or file a JIRA ticket
with INFRA.
