I wonder if for depreciation of build options like axTLS, you should arrange
a big warning message should anyone try to build it. This may get someone's
attention when they might otherwise miss notification on this list or the
site. Maybe even make the build fail without some sort of "I got it" tweak,
like add --depreciated to the build command or change a flag in a file or

For a runtime option like HTTP pipelining, I guess the best one can do is to
put out a depreciated option warning when it is used and any sort of logging
is enabled.
