Jon Siwek commented on BIT-1305:

topic/jsiwek/bit-1305 deprecates everything except &persistent and &synchronized.  We should wait at least one version to deprecate those, especially since scripts that ship w/ Bro still use &synchronized -- i.e. we shouldn't issue deprecation warnings for stuff that ships w/ Bro by default.

> Likely candidates for deprecation:
> &rotate_interval
> &rotate_size

> While the mechanism I added in BIT-757 can't be used to mark attributes as deprecated, I'm thinking it's not difficult to just hard code the scanner to emit a warning when encountering certain attributes.
