Description Jesse Glick 2009-07-14 19:35:52 UTC
Appears in API (see URL).

Probably PaletteModule, PaletteSwitch, PaletteTopComponent, and PaletteVisibility all need to be moved to

Technically an incompatible change so may require some flag in to skip it; better ask Yarda.

Silly (yet harmless, e.g. less than P3) oversight. Imho you could:

1. deprecate immediately
2. let it be for one release
3. hide by using @PatchByteCode in next release after 6.8
4. remove the release after that

I base this advice on my understanding of My advice follows the "phased" 
steps, through this change could be done in "separable" mode as well. Yet I consider creation of some new module and 
usage of automatic dependencies too heavyweight for this case.
