the eiffel keyword ''obsolete'' has an argument that explains what
alternatives there are, instead of the obsolete feature. perhaps
somehting like this (yes, i know this makes it impossible to obsolete a
whole slew of functions in one go. but see my second example for an
-obsolete(b/2, "use c/2 instead").
moreover, eiffel can obsolete a whole class. which could be quite handy:
-obsolete("use my_other_module instead").
