In Octave-4.1.0+ java_get(), java_set() and some other functions have been
removed cf. the deprecation schedule; however there is no replacement in place
yet for getting static field values of Java classes.

See also https://savannah.gnu.org/task/?12601

A while ago this was already brought up in the mailing list or in the bug
tracker, but I couldn't find it.

Slight annoyance is that this deprecation will render half of the Java-based
spreadsheet I/O in the io package non-functional until this has been fixed.
Example, code like:

ctype(1) = java_get ("org.apache.poi.ss.usermodel.Cell",

is vital for some functions but is broken in 4.1.0+. Same goes for code to
check for version number of certain Java class libs.

I assume that we'll first wait until 4.0 is released before this issue will
get attention, right? (after all 4.1.0+ is quite bleeding edge)
If so, status can be set to "postponed"
