In my opinion this should stay for at least another year! Especially
because we still have products and user deployment which use 3.x version in
them. While we say from community that we don't 'support' any old version,
giving them option (or more time) to shift their clients to higher version
after an upgrade is crucial for the project.

Also, unlike many other code we removed (For example, RDMA / Tiering etc),
this is not adding any complexity or dependency issues to the codebase.

I am *not* in favour of removing the old xdr format codebase yet. Happy to
hear what others think.
