I don't know.

While it is more than 10 years ago, I seem to recall a lot of stuff on Mutopia where there are LP files to use are from much older than 2010.

I think at the very least we should perhaps 'flag' anything (either as a warning or as an error) for users that might have needed to convert something that we have removed because of backward compatibility if they tried to use such a convert-ly file. Rather than look like it has worked until they try to compile it with the later code and then get an error and open a bug report (if you see what I mean).
