[equinox-dev] Provide new OSGi service API without obsolete API (Dictionary)?

Hi,

I wanted to give official feedback that my customers are surprised
that OSGi service API is based on obsolete data types.

>From the Javadoc of Dictionary:
----
NOTE: This class is obsolete.
----

This makes the OSGi service API look outdated for several of the
customers I discussed this. OSGi ds hides this a bit but sometimes the
low-level API must be used.

So for those involved in the OSGi spec, maybe you can consider
deprecating the old methods in BundleContext and providing new ones
with non-obsolete API, e.g., Map?

I'm aware that this is "just a mailing list" but AFAIK several of the
subscribed people here are involved in the OSGi specification.

Best regards, Lars
