One thing to add is the need for some sort of option/context such that users can control when the message about the deprecated variable gets displayed.

>    Affects Versions: git/master

>              Labels: language
> Based on discussion in BIT-1411, we need a better mechanism for deprecating code. In particular, Vern suggested the attribute {{&deprecate=expr}} syntax where {{expr}} would be an expression that evaluates at the point of use of the deprecated construct and would show the user a hint on how to migrate.
