A thought is to leave them in the doc tools.Â Since the tools treat SYNOPSIS and
ANSI_SYNOPSIS the same, they'll work the same with or without the present
change.Â 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.Â (Probably a very small
to non-existent set of people, but it is difficult to know if there are any or
not.)Â 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.Â I've thought of doing this for a long while, but have
never had the time to actually go ahead and do it.
