Subject RE: Usage of deprecated methods in 1.6 CORE
Date Tue, 21 Oct 2003 14:01:03 GMT
That is fine. One of the things that made me jump into it
is that if you look at the deprecated messages they say to use instead
blah, but it is difficult to figure out what it is meant by blah.

We should indicate better which and how to use the replacement methods,
it is really not clear and that would made more difficult for people to 
upgrade their code.
