I guess my problem is that to me @deprecate means "it still works like
it used to, but it won't work in a future version and it's time for
you to change your code", but that's not what's going to happen here.

That's why if we're not really @deprecating it but crippling it, then
I'd recommend removing it.  Giving end-users the false-hope that
things are working as usual isn't very nice.

You know the details of this particular situation better than I do,
though.   If you don't think silently doing nothing will affect
expected program behavior, go for it.
