What Kevin and I have both repeatedly suggested, I think, is:
- Do not deprecate inside_entry_func; fix it if you don't like the
way it is implemented. Change the implementation.
- Deprecate entry_func_lowpc and entry_func_highpc (there's a typo in
your changelog, two lowpc's) if you really want to deprecate
The concept of inside_entry_func does not seem to be deprecated, so why
