Hi Sergey,

I understand the backward compatibility for exist 2.7.x users - although if
they have any other dependencies that need (such as Jersey)
they will run into problems.

Could a 2.8.x branch solve this issue? Identical to 2.7.x, but with the the
released rs-api 2.0. I believe it's a fairly minor change - but of course
there is extra work to maintain two branches. On the plus side it would
make migrating from 2.8.x to 3.0.x easier.
