One other note:  AFAIK the last message drop for jdk8 localization was 
done.  It means that the Japanese and Chinese version will not be 
updated matching your patch.   It's okay for the new warning message as 
it will fall back to the default English version.   For the existing 
-v1.1, -vcompat, -v1.2 options, the Japanese and Chinese version will 
not have "(deprecated)" word in it.   I suggest to edit the other 
localized versions to update the modified existing messages.
