We all know that, but we don't do that for a reason:

Unit level deprecated  is 2.5.1 functionality (r14767 , Mantis 13373)

Still, comments could be added and procedures/methods flagged. I'll take
care of this. I also added to user changes trunk.

Michael, please have a look and expand on it:

Units are generally only removed between major releases. I'm not so sure
this will happen at all.  Specially since the mutation rate of the new stuff
is still high. 

As you can see in http://www.stack.nl/~marcov/fpctomerge.txt or your local
GIT equivalent, most of the fcl-web/json stuff is not merged.
