A thought is to leave them in the doc tools.  Since the tools treat SYNOPSIS and 
ANSI_SYNOPSIS the same, they'll work the same with or without the present 
change.  Leaving in TRAD_SYNOPSIS as something to be ignored plus keeping 
ANSI_SYNOPSIS as working could possibly help out people that have added their 
own stuff, not forcing them to make these same changes.  (Probably a very small 
to non-existent set of people, but it is difficult to know if there are any or 
not.)  It doesn't seem to hurt anything to leave them, although adding a note 
that they have been retained for legacy purposes might be a good idea.

Thank you for doing this.  I've thought of doing this for a long while, but have 
never had the time to actually go ahead and do it.
