      Description

      From the users@qpid.apache.org mail thread:

      Hi All,

      I sent this email about a month ago with no replies to date. So I'd thought I'd re-ping the list. Is anyone using these libraries?

      If not, then I'd like to propose that we mark them as Deprecated in our upcoming 0.26 release.

      I volunteer adding the appropriate code warning directives to the build, so any code that attempts to include these APIs will issue deprecation warnings at compile time. We'll leave them available in the code for 0.26 (and I think at least one more release - Justin?), and if the warnings reveal a large user base, we can "un-deprecate" them.

      But in order to really stand behind this code, we'll have to invest some time in building unit tests for them. AFAIK, this stuff is not getting any test coverage right now.

      Opinions sought!

      thanks,

      -K
