Description
The original DSI interface (sun.awt.DrawingSurface, etc.) has been superceded
by the new JAWT interface in kestrel. We decided to keep the old interface
around for one release; however, it should probably be removed for merlin.
Since the interface is not a public API, only customers who were specifically
notified about the interface should have ever used it. Those customers have
since been notified about the new interface.

EVALUATION Commit to merlin. We may not actually do this for merlin, but we should make a decision for merlin. david.mendenhall@eng 1999-11-22 Name: rpC71689 Date: 03/29/2000 ###@###.### The old API is no longer in use, so it and all that related to it should be removed. ======================================================================
