I don't think I really agree with the "new code only" guideline (where
did this come from, anyway?). 10 years from now any remaining pre-2020
terms will look exceedingly archaic and will get converted at some

Wouldn't be longterm realistic to just bite the bullet now and add these
conversions to the various todo lists?
