As a compromise, maybe we could have -X (or --help?) tell the user to
use -DONE_PROCESS.  It's kind of ugly, and I suppose it might be
difficult to draw the line on what gets this sort of backwards
compatibility treatment.  OTOH, this was one of the first things I
noticed about 2.0 as well..."how the heck do I do -X?!".

Just a thought...
