Sadly, the rules we work under require complete API compatibility.
We can deprecate methods, but we can't remove them.  I'd
like nothing more than to kill the old APIs (and make some other
changes, too), but it's just not in the cards.

The EL side of things isn't actually that bad, since the old APIs
can all be implemented in terms of the new ones in a rather
straightforward fashion.  The real ugliness is in supporting the old
and new state manager APIs - now *that* is painful.
