I think the @deprecated is a good idea, but I strongly believe that we
should *not* have this as a default. There's an easy workaround for
the subset of applications that need it (e.g. enable it in the
.properties file) whilst still preventing new code from being able to
reference it. A simple FAQ should be enough to help people do this.

Mind you, I seem to be in the minority on this view on this list :-)

Alex.
