I noticed the following text when doing C-h f completing-read RET:


If INITIAL-INPUT is non-nil, insert it in the minibuffer initially.
  If it is (STRING . POSITION), the initial input
  is STRING, but point is placed POSITION characters into the string.
  This feature is deprecated--it is best to pass nil for INITIAL.

Can anyone tell me why this nice feature of completing-read is
considered deprecated and what to use instead to get the same functionality?
