Actually, I'm not so sure about removing id only after 2.7. Basically
all that's missing is a conversion of block job commands to accept
node-name so that qemu-iotests cases can be converted. This is a mostly
mechanical conversion and I have part of it ready.
About keeping stats-*, what good is it to keep an option that we know
will go away sooner or later? For id there is a good reason, removing it
now would break test cases. But stats-*? I don't see a reason.
