That's a key point. Either there are two apis forever or, some time 
after the new APIs are both a proper superset of the old APIs (are we 
there yet?) and the majority of downstream project have migrated to the 
new APIs, then the old ones can be removed.

And how do you persuade developers to move off the old APIs except 
through deprecation warnings?
