Isn't the general process (or at least past pattern) to: - have 1 release cycle with just the old code (aka 8.x with oldNFS) - have 1 release cycle with old and new code, default to old (aka 9.x with oldNFS + newNFS) - have 1 release cycle with old and new code, default to new (aka 10.x with newNFS) - remove the old code from next release (aka 11.0)
Or is that too long of a time-frame to migrate from old to new?
