    I think we should declare it obsolete because the alternative (of adding an
    argument) is always clearer, less brittle, and allows callers better

Before we say it is obsolete, we had better see if anyone does really
want it.  It would be very good for someone to determine which, if
any, of the current uses of interactive-p really want the current
behavior of interactive-p.
