I understand the desire to grandfather/remove deprecated interfaces.


1) We're not all following Boost.Test development, just trying our best to
maintain old stuff. I suspect like most Boosters I have no idea what is and
isn't deprecated, and I certainly don't want to have to spend time rewriting
old tests to a new interface.
2) It would have taken you 20 seconds max to do a grep to discover if any of
these old interfaces were still in use.
3) I'll just point out that you won't see *any* online regression test
results if you break the bjam build.
