Perhaps I misunderstood something, but didn't the committers decide that 
anything which was deprecated would issue a warning for one major release, 
issue an error for the next major release, and would be removed after that?

Has anything been done with that? This looks like a perfect candidate to be 
promoted to the BuildException level, since the deprecation has been around 
since 1.2. In fact, I would think that anything that was deprecated before 
1.4 should throw a BuildException. Once that is done, then 1.6 could be a 
target for removing lots of old code (or 1.5.1, I was never clear what the 
decision was on that).

Are you just looking for a volunteer to go through the code and do it?
