What's the purpose of deprecating gets() in favour of fgets() if the
deprecated function is supported forever anyway?

The reason is called "compatibility": old programs will still work, with the
same problems as before. Fortunately, unless gets(), adding a NULL frame
does not open a security risk, it just gives a slightly wrong result.
