Please accept a lurker's thanks to everyone who replied, on list and off
list, to my question about "deprecated."

Initially, I was averse to using it, but as I read folks' comments and
thought back to how I'd seen the term used elsewhere, I came to like it.
Sort of like certain pungent cheeses or single-malt whiskeys.

I especially liked some of the propsed alternatives -- doomed, senile,
lame duck, and so on.

You guys are pretty good when you're not trying to rile up Eric <smirk>.
