And I don't think that `find-tag' should be deprecated
(obsolete).  Its "replacement" is simply a different
command, with some things in common and some things
different.  Both have their uses; each can be preferred
by some users for some things.

(I also don't think that the default key binding of
`find-tag' should have been hijacked for its
"replacement", but that's a different and lesser problem.)
