I'm trying parse what the above means, it seems to be one of the two:

1) There is still a bunch of code that continues to use 2-tuples in the
plugins and additional work remains to converge on a single API.

2) All the code that used 2-tuples has been cleaned up and expunged,
however if the old 2-tuple methodology was used it would still work.

it's the former, there is still code that uses 2-tuples.

O.K. so we're still a ways away from completing the task. Would this be
a correct summary?

Phase 1 is completed, a consistent API has been defined and implemented.
Phase 2 is converting all the code to use the API defined in Phase 1, a
task yet to be done.

Correct. But I don't think converting 2-tuples to the new API will be a
huge task.
