I've started working on moving some of the old commands forward using PKEY
calls. My intention is for them to still print out a deprecated message when
run but for them to not actually be removed by the no-deprecated configure
Having them print equivalent pkey command looks to be somewhat problematic.
There isn’t a 1:1 conversion and some of the legacy options simply aren’t
I’m hoping to have a preliminary PR up later this week.

Agreed, that sounds quite reasonable at first blush, and could be
if it can be made to work (no immediate obstacles come to mind).
