Ok, you could do that.  But if that is the official answer you should at
least remove the item from the TODO. (Seems silly to have something in
the todo and then wait till people code up a patch to tell them to use
tr instead.)

Maybe adding a note in the docs would be handy too but I'm not sure
where would be appropriate.
