Backwards compatibility of FileSystem interface.
Hi :

Are FileSystem interfaces gauranteed to retain semantics of the old
FileSystem contract?

Im noticing that the new FileSystem uses the "CreateFlag" class, which
older ones did not, and I'm wondering wether the deprecation of some
FileSystem methods (i.e. createNonRecursive) will eventually be entirely
phased out.

This is in reference to some issues with HBASE and the createNonRecursive
implementation which varies across different hadoop versions.
