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?
