IMNSHO, most of the stuff on that page can be accomplished in small,
easy chunks, with a minimum of disruption:
For each piece, create an EasyHack that looks like:
   (a) create new methods, namespaces, etc. that fix the problem
   (b) mark old stuff as deprecated
   (c) let the compiler point out the places that need changing
   (d) leave the old stuff for a couple of releases, and then start a
rolling delete
