That's right, we do.  We have chosen to replace old ClassAds with new
ClassAds in two phases.  The first phase was to yank out old ClassAds,
put in new ClassAds, and implement a wrapper layer around the new
ClassAds so that the interface *looks* like old ClassAds.  This way we
didn't have to re-write every daemon immediately. :-)  A side effect is
that you still can't use any new ClassAd features.  This has been done
and tested.

The second phase is to start re-writing daemons to use the actual new
ClassAd interfaces (and also new ClassAd features).  This will be a
bigger project, and has not yet begun.
