It's definitely a goal, but I don't know of anyone actively working on that.
What ever came about dropping old versions of HBase support? I thought
we nuked <=1.2 (leaving just 1.3 and 1.4), but it seems like they have
come back... The reason I ask: backporting the deprecation changes will
be tough, and likely be tough for each branch they're targeted on.
Trying to reduce where they need to go would be a big help.

Is it still the plan to get rid of deprecated HBase APIs in the 4.x
branches? This would ease the pain of porting changes between 4.x and 5.x
branches. I think it's likely that both branches will need to be maintained
for some time. We'd likely need to get a Tephra release with this done too,
but I think the work has already been done, no?
