Argh, yes, it is a typo. I had written "I would prefer _not_ to
instrument the code with warnings...". While reading it back to myself,
I thought "using underlining there is too argumentative", but somehow
managed to delete the whole word rather than simply the "_" characters.
I'm very sorry to have wasted people's time by accidentally making the
opposite point.

I agree with the line of reasoning you laid out in your email,

I hadn't thought of the rename idea, and it would address the concerns I
brought up. I do think "obsolete" is the wrong word, as it sends the
wrong message. The helpers are not obsolete; it is our _copy_ of them
that is.
