+1 If there are cases where we can't avoid breaking backwards
compatibility, then let's use the name2 pattern on individual classes
or interfaces instead of the entire package. There are large
parts of Commons IO that don't need to change when upgrading to Java 5
and I don't see why a client that only uses those parts should be
affected in any way by the upgrade.
