good idea.  Autoconf manual contains a section for obsolete macros.
AFAIK, this is used when a documented macro is obsoleted.  But perhaps
AC_FOREACH is so popular that it should be documented even after it
was obsoleted.
There was an _m4_(something) mentioned as a replacement, right? Is it safe to document that in the place people might look to read about AC_FOREACH?
