(This one is for the jdk9-dev forest once it is created)

The addPropertyChangeListener and removePropertyChangeListener methods 
defined by Pack200.{Packer,Unpacker} and LogManager methods are 
deprecated and flagged with a warning that they "will be removed in a 
future release". This is highlighted in the EDR and Public Review of JSR 
337 and also flagged in JEP 162.

I'd like to swing the axe early in JDK 9 so as to give every opportunity 
for anything that might have a dependency. There are a few other 
modularity related changes that need to go in early too but this is the 
only one that involves the removal of methods.

The webrev with the changes is here:


I've cc'ed build-dev as there are make file changes to remove the 
de-beaning rules (these methods do not exist in subset Profiles of Java 
SE and were removed as part of the build).
