today after updating an M7i to 7.1R1.3 i noticed that the 'policer' 
statement is deprecated...  I'm unclear as to what is better,a nd theres 
nothing anywhere in any juniper docs that I can find that mentions the 
policer statement even being deprecated nor what they intend to be used 

IE...(config snippet)

firewall {
    filter outbound-filter {
        policer mailapp0-smtp-out { ## Warning: 'policer' is deprecated
            if-exceeding {
                bandwidth-limit 2m;
                burst-size-limit 250k;
            then discard;

Undocumented Features quote of the moment...

have to worry about; it's the twenty thousand-odd rounds
labeled `occupant.'"
