I was following your lead, so anything that's decided is fine
with me.

Perhaps some of these deprecated messages should be generalized
to say "not recommended for new installations: use XYZ instead."

My idea for instituting the deprecations is not to remove any
existing functionality.  My idea is to try to "take out the
garbage" in the ports collection -- I think we would all agree
that there is some -- it's just a question of what constitues

I'm really more interested in things that, e.g., stand no chance of
ever working on 5.3, or haven't fetched in 3 years, or are otherwise
