+** User asyncs deprecated
+
+Guile had (and still has) "system asyncs", which are asynchronous
+interrupts, and also had this thing called "user asyncs", which was a
+trivial unused data structure.  Now that we have deprecated the old
+`async', `async-mark', and `run-asyncs' procedures that comprised the
+"user async" facility, we have been able to clarify our documentation to
+only refer to "asyncs".
