And one final thing I didn't notice if anybody had mentioned yet (and
don't have time to look for now, since I'm off to wait in line to vote):
it's *very* important that every mention of the "old" verbs note that it
is a deprecated synonym for the new verb (or at least that it's a
synonym). We don't want people thinking that there are two different
commands because they are slightly different in behavior, then getting
confused about which to use.
