This is an important point. My interpretation of the obsolete warning
is a notice that you need to start planning to update, not hat you
have to do anything right now.

Although its not something I like to do, you can also turn the warning
for obsolete functions 'off'  I have sometimes done this in released
code as users sometimes get concerned when they see lots of warnings
when a package builds. In development code, I avoid disabling any
warnings as they do serve a purpose and I like to know about them all!
