Right, I don't think it's worth talking about until gantt is
demonstrated to be working.  Otherwise the deprecation path discussion
is a moot point.  It's really a switch I'd rather flip at the beginning
of a release cycle, anyway.  It seems quite likely that any deprecation
cycle will start in Juno and not Icehouse at this point.
