The bikeshed was not cross-posted to -stable or -hackers,
and someone did an "MFC" on the change, thus bypassing
any discussion about getting the change into -stable?

Or the natural progression of version changes pushed the
change event into the next release, with no real notification,
and no "csh is deprecated; used tcsh instead" message for
one major release (i.e. there was no formal deprecation
during which people could change their csh scripts)?
