    Remove explicit used of nested contexts.
        find . -type f -name '*.java' | xargs sed -i '' 's/\([.]..code[(].*\),  *context.nested..[)]/\1)/'
        find . -type f -name '*.java' | xargs sed -i '' 's/\([.]..code[(].*\),  *nestedContext[)]/\1)/'
        find . -type f -name '*.java' | xargs sed -i '' 's/\([.]..code[(].*\),  *Context.NESTED[)]/\1)/'
        find . -type f -name '*.java' | xargs sed -i '' 's/\([.]..code[(].*\),  *[^ ]*.Context.NESTED[)]/\1)/'
    Added back explicit context in due to compile error.

    Remove contexts from coders where they'll never be used.

    Remove en/decodeOuter and default encode/decode methods.
    Now only the context-free encode() and decode() methods are abstract.
