"While deprecating a feature does not guarantee it will be removed and not deprecating something does not guarantee its continued support, we have tried to identify the most likely features that are at risk during the redesign process that will occur before a V4 is available."

I don't know what more you're looking for here but if you want a specific comment...There is probably no chance that there will be such a mechanism in V4 because we don't have that designed into the Java code now and it will be even harder to pull off given the split in the design.

I do anticipate that having some means of getting some of the information out such as algorithm support may be added in a different form.
