I can switch to using M-x man. But I dunno how many people are used to
the other name, and it's not trivial to see what's happening, since
completion just behaves inconsistent. Instead of denying to complete a
name that RET then accepts, it would be better to complete and maybe
omit a warning, or to not accept the obsoleted name at all.
