javap has code for a number of options which say "this option is no longer supported".
This includes -h, -Xold, -verify, -verify-verbose

To match -Xold, it has a vacuously empty option, -Xnew.

All these options date from an earlier rewrite of javap.

It is time to remove support for these options.

-XDcompat, which was never a publicly documented option, should also be removed. It existed during the latest rewrite to give bug-for-bug matching of the generated output.
