Keith initially proposed that approach internally but it had some issues 
because some of those "deprecated" JVM_XXX functions actually get called 
- in particular the Compiler API functions get invoked by AWT code. 
Because warnings are enabled by default, this would cause warnings to 
appears for every app that uses the AWT.

Though with the current discussion regarding the "invisible VM" I'm 
unclear whether the accepted approach is for warnings to be enabled by 
default or not ???
