I do agree this is the nature of the beast.

Also, thinking more about it... I think a good approach, for an issue
with a large number of deprecations, might be to open a separate issue
to fix the deprecations in contrib/test, and fix it after some delay.
This way we confirm that deprecated usage of the APIs is working, for
at least some time, before removing them all from the tests.

EG in LUCENE-1458 I waited until quite late to cutover usage to the flex API.
