I think was Jan wants to express is that he shares my concerns that the
current API (or better: the JavaDocs and the spec text) makes it rather hard
to understand what that "correct" way is. See all the dumb questions Jan and
me have asked. They are not (only) caused by our repective personal
situations, but also by the unability to understand that "correct" way. What
we like to reach (Jan, chime in if you think I got you wrong) is to improve
the JavaDocs and spec text to better express that "correct" way. We do not
intend to remove or change the API.
