Nope. We accept both because even after a decade, people's fingers haven't
changed. The original change was poorly socialized and met with scorn at
the time. It's better to just accept both as some people have changed and
others haven't. The 'deprecated' part never took hold, so I just removed
the warning because the consensus is we are never going to stop accepting
both.
