I'm not sure what you mean by "migration" here. The only thing that
comes into that category in my understanding of the term is a bash
script shipped with Denemo which opens all xxxx.denemo files and saves
them to the same place. The idea being that this will update the format
of the files, which has changed over the years. But generally, I've
never removed the backwards-compatibility in the parsing of Denemo files
and so it hasn't been needed. I did actually do it once, removing import
of the old-format slurs storage after a year or so of backwards
compatibility and then, ironically, found that I hadn't run the
migration script myself, let alone warned people to run it, so that was
an unhappy experience. As to removing commands, as a rule I don't do it
on the basis that I can't be sure who out there has written a script
invoking any particular command. I can understand how I came to drop
"ToggleRestMode", however, since there are no "modes" in Denemo, haven't
been for about 10 years, so no-one could be usefully calling it.
A short course I once took in Perl programming convinced me that it was
a language I would avoid if at all possible!
