At a certain point of UHD stability (for a reasonable definition of
stability), we'll start migrating GNU Radio example and utility
applications to start using gr-uhd instead of gr-usrp/gr-usrp2. This
will be done on the 'next' branch, which is where API-breaking code
development happens, and will find it's way into the 3.4 release
The example code changes to use UHD/gr-uhd will also serve as good
documentation on what's necessary to do for end-user scripts.
