Oh, I see. And a good thing, too, to make it deprecated. I have changed the
application I wanted to test to not use suspend() and resume().

Yes, but don't you think you might scare off a few potential customers if
you're not 1.1.x compatible? A lot of people - well, MOST people - write 1.1
applications. Otherwise you might just call Kaffe a 1.2 VM and skip the
reference to 1.1 altogether. Being compliant with 1.2 doesn't necessarily
mean not implementing deprecated methods, does it?
