Not really. In standards parlance, to say that a feature is
deprecated means "Be advised that this feature will likely
disappear in future versions." That's a lot stronger than
saying, "Using this feature is frowned upon by experts."

I think we might be having a semantic problem here. Surely
any OS needs some way for a user to uniquely identify a file.
Whatever that way is is what I would call a path. Am I
missing something?
