I suppose we ought to have standard guidance to authors on this, but the
usual process goes something like: warn that the interface is
deprecated, but maintain it for a release. Then remove it in a later
release. If the changes are such that the new stuff cannot coexist with
the old you might need to wrap the deprecated code in a macro and
explain how to get the old interface during the interim...
