[c-nsp] Why so many 'NOTE: This command is deprecated. Pleaseuse...'?

Recommending a command identical to the one claimed to be deprecated
seems to have resulted in more confusion, not less, since from Aaron's
question it appears that they decided to replace the command with an
exact replica (much like the contents of Steven Wright's apartment).

Perhaps an if-test is missing from the CLI to only issue the
"deprecated command" warning if a deprecated command was used?
