The trouble is that we'll want other people to be able to implement
their own parser and detector classes that plug into Tika. So as a
general rule I'd treat anything in tika-core that's not explicitly
private as a part of our public API that should be kept
backwards-compatible except for major version upgrades like the 0.x to
1.x jump we're about to make.
