Alright, I've just pushed up such deprecation warnings.  They instruct
the user to switch e.g., begin_dot to begin_src dot.  Hopefully this is
sufficient.  I suppose the responsible thing to do now is to wait
through an entire release cycle, and then two releases from now the
functions can be removed.
